WAOC Juniors run at Danbury!

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.

Milton AGM - Score Course results

Thanks to all who braved the wintery conditions on Saturday to go out on a lamppost safari (or marker post safari for the junior course).

The results do depend somewhat on luck, as I did not reveal which of the original control sites had the maps showing the locations of the extra controls. In retrospect I should probably have added that information.

The results are are as follows:

Junior 30 minute score

Daniel Hague 28:50 210 points (including extras), no penalty Score 210

Caitlin Dunning 28:16 100 points, no penalty Score 100

Senior 45 minute score

Stephen Borrill 42:44 290 points (including extras) no penalty Score 290

Bruce Marshall 42:32 180 points (including extras) no penalty Score 180

Sean Blanchflower 33:56 160 points no penalty Score 160

Sue Woods 44:49 150 points (including extras) no penalty Score 150

Our annual prizegiving and AGM will be on 17 March in Milton.
Anne will arrange for the club trophies to be engraved with the 2017
winners' names, but she needs the trophies to be returned to her by mid
February at the latest.

So - if you have a WAOC trophy, please can you pass it on to myself or
another committee member e.g. at an event, or make your own arrangements
to return the item to Anne by mid-February.
