New for 2019 - The East Anglian Region is setting up an urban league. This will work in a similar way to the EA League which generally involves cross country orienteering events.
Alex Wetherill, our Junior Team Captain, has been selected to run for England in the Interland International orienteering competition to be held in Ardennes in France, in March 2019.
Congratulations to Helen Bickle, overall winner of the W35S category at the Lakes 5 Days.
A number of other WAOC members were highly placed in the overall scores:
WAOC can pay for members to qualify as first aiders in return for occasionally providing first aid coverage at events, typically sharing with another first aider so that both can run. If you can help with first aid, please contact Helen Hague using the Convenor email (contacts).
Huge congratulations and many thanks to all the Juniors who came to Danbury Park to run for WAOC in the Yvette Baker heat on Sunday 13th May.
Every member of the team completed their course so we had the maximum 9 scores possible from our team of 9. All the juniors put in impressive performances, there were some good solid runs from the more experienced juniors but also some excellent runs on the yellow course by the younger members of the team.
Several WAOC members won their classes at the East Anglian Championships at Writtle Forest today (25th).
