B&T College JOG
It was a dank and miserable afternoon but competitors returning from their runs had wide smiles and rosy cheeks! Some were experiencing urban orienteering for the second week in a row.
I think we were all surprised by the large turnout with several new families joining in the fun.
Andrew Page had the planned courses around the campus using his experience of urban orienteering with Gavin Clegg acting as the controller.
The pick of the courses was the Fox which had contols marked on the map and accurate control descriptions but no lines showing the order, competitors had to decide this themselves reading the control descriptions!

Our series of contrasts continues when we visit the mini wilderness of Kingscliff Woods, near North Petherton this coming Saturday. Steep sided woods, streams and possibly some mud! Bring your wellies just in case.

Steve Robertson has barely had a blank weekend recently and continued a fine series of runs at Berkshire OC's regional event at Star Posts on Sunday. Taking just under 55 minutes, he was 10th out of more than 40 runners on his M65 course and finished within 10 minutes of the winner. Julia joined Steve there and was 8th out of 12 on the W65 course. She was seconds ahead of Sarum OC's Denise Mullins, a familiar face to regular QOFL-goers over the years and pretty speedy on her day.
