Ex British Orienteering Squad coach interviewed in the tabloid press(But sadly not in the sporting section)
Here is a link to a Guardian article with an interview with Martin Bagness and a glimpse of what's in store at the Lakes 5 days this August.
Club Captain Janet Cronk, together with Sue and Peter Woods, travelled up to Morpeth on 9-10 June for a weekend of orienteering organised by NATO. This included representing the club in the British Mixed Sprint Relay competition at Pegswood on the Saturday, followed by a much longer individual race on the Sunday, which as part of the UKOL garners league points for the club.
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).
Six members of WAOC travelled to Scotland and took part in the British Long Distance Championships that was held in the grounds of Balmoral Castle on Saturday 19th May. Some great orienteering was experienced in a technically challenging area and congratulations must go to Ursula Oxburgh, who came 2nd on W80, and Peter Haynes who was 13th on M60L.
