At Ham Hill
On Wednesday 24 July Pete Akers and Tony Hext organised a CATI (come and try it) event as part of South Somerset’s Pop-up Museum and Activity Calendar.
Thanks to Tony Hext for the following report.
- Martin Lewis and Pete Shirvington have registered for the Race the Castles series in Yorkshire- but not all nine days in a row, which includes urban, middle distance, woodland and even indoor events!
- One of our leading orienteers Brian Fletcher reports that he is hoping to return to orienteering next year
Six events are being planned for next season, with four on the Quantocks and the others on the Polden Ridge and in east Devon.
Already we have planning teams for each event but our fixtures secretary would be grateful for any offers to organise QOFLs 4 & 6.
Next season's fixtures
See what lies in store for you throughout the season in our handy calendar (below). Venues vary from runnable forest, open hillside, moorland and mixed New Forest terrain.
These events are bigger than our QOFLs (Local 'forest' league) but still on a human scale and have toilets and often traders present.
It went down to the final relay but Wessex pipped us in the end on their own patch. Apart from that, it was a great series with three relays wins for us at Devon, Sarum and our own events.
in South Wales
A miniature mountain orienteering course was amongst one of the attractions for a trio of QO who made the trip to South Wales and Forest of Dean this weekend for a double-header. Ideal preparation for forthcoming summer tournaments, it was well attended by those seeking a technical challenge.
