Yvette Baker Competition 2022

Congratulations to our team of Juniors for their success at winning the Shield section (for smaller clubs) of the Yvette Baker competition on Sunday, at an event hosted in Irchester Country Park by Leicestershire Orienteering Club. It was a closely-fought competition, with only 4 points between the first three teams once the number-crunching had been completed.

The overall scores were: SUFFOC: 497, SOS: 496, BKO: 493, while the individual contributions made were: James & Ethan, 100 points each on the Orange & Yellow courses respectively, & 99 points each for Alesha (Green), Ben & Olivia (both on Light Green). Full results can be viewed on the LEIOC website.

Our thanks to all those who took part, either competing or by supporting, with a special mention of Mr Roach from Barnardiston Hall School who helped to transport some of the team members.

Christchurch Park 2

Well done to all those who took part in today's event in Christchurch Park - you can view the overall results here.

The final event in the series will be in Holywells Park on Sunday 26th June - & don't forget that anyone with a signed Ipswich-O 2022 Passport will get free entry to our other two Summer Series events, in Clare on 3rd July & in Needham Lake Country Park on 17th July.


Other Opportunities..

The next chance to take part in our evening MapRun Challenge series is happening soon. This one's at Pinewood, on the western side of Ipswich, & it's a 60 minute score course. Entry is free, but you'll need to have installed the MapRun app to use the GPS tracking & timing. If you missed either of the earlier meetings you can still try the new courses at Stowmarket & Ravenswood yourself, or with friends - you'll find links to full info on this webpage.

Holywells Park 1

Another Ipswich-O event in beautiful weather, this time in Holywells Park, with many groups and families taking part - though obviously not disturbing the wildlife in the park!! The results have been uploaded and can be found here.

Many thanks to the volunteers who prepared and organised the event.

The next Ipswich-O event is in Christchurch Park on 11th June and before that date we have our Summer Series event in Bridge Wood (Orwell Country Park) on 5th June.
