This year, the Peter Palmer junior relay competition is happening over the 7th and 8th September in Ashdown Forest, organised by SAXONS Orienteering club.
The relay runs from the Saturday night into Sunday morning, so more experienced juniors run in the dark with head torches, and those running later will see the sun rise or be running in daylight. It is great fun, and we encourage all WAOC juniors to take part.
This is a team event. Janet, our club captain, will be organising the WAOC entries.
Details are now available on the SAXONS website here.
Congratulations to Andrew Stemp, who gained a podium place as 3rd overall in the M21S category. Other notable achievements include Dil ("I'm just on my way to a meeting") Wetherill, 4th in M55S, and Noreen Ives, who was placed 4th in W65S.
Well done to all WAOC juniors that came to the YBT national final at the weekend. It was lovely to see so many of you there at our first YBT final in a while and thanks to you and your parents for driving out to Sandringham.
The results from the 2018-2019 Evening League have now been calculated and the winners were announced (and prizes given out) at Milton Country Park on Wednesday 3rd.
This year's Punt-O was a success (and dry!).
Congratulations to Duncan Coombs, who achieved a podium place and won a Bronze Medal competing as an M21 Elite at the British Long Distance Championships which took place in Kilnsey in the Yorkshire Dales on May 5th.
There is a short article on the British Orienteering website, written by Tim Herod, about his experience helping at a recent Park-O event. You can read the article here:
A number of club members enjoyed taking part in the 2019 Midland Championships at Brown Clee Hill, Shropshire on Sunday 26 May. But it was only the WAOC Juniors who were able to successfully navigate their challenging courses well enough to win the W12 and M16 Midlands Championship Trophies. Congratulations to both of them.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
