We are looking to mark the club's half centenary in 2018 with a special event. What do you think we should do? There's a few ideas below. Please pass on your thoughts at a forthcoming club night or event, or phone or email our chairman (see contacts page)
Galoppen series begins
Several QO members competed in what was mainly marshy rough open terrain in the New Forest on Sunday. In the first south west league fixture of the season, both Brian Fletcher and Tony Hext opened their accounts with solid performances.
(Come & Try It)
Those visiting us for the first time, we enjoyed showing you the ropes and welcome you back this coming Saturday, when our session will be at Thurlbear Wood, this time to the east of Taunton.
Horses for courses
Our junior group got the chance to rub shoulders with some seasoned runners from throughout the UK, with the latest JOG session taking place during the Long O score at a beauty spot on the Quantocks on Saturday
Club night course
Remember that feeling when the event organiser asked you to take charge of the SI? Nine of our members put their hands up and joined Andy Rimes in a ‘revision’ session at COACH on Thursday (27th)

Our first JOG of the new season up was on a bright, warm day on the Blackdowns, with good views from the top. It attracted almost as many people as our first forest league event the previous week!
