This February we are planning a weekend of orienteering. Three events over two days. More info to follow...

Rivalries, holly trees and a sleek fox - how Quantock Orienteers got on at Caddihoe 2021 - the South West Middle and Long Distance championships in the New Forest last weekend.
Our new online entry system
As we prepare for the coming season, we have selected a new pre-entry and online payment system called RaceSignup. Written by Pete Davis from Southampton Orienteering Club, I'm sure many of you have already used it when entering Devon's events.
Roger Craddock tells us of his run on this year's Quantocks Challenge.
Several of the dozen QO runners managed to get themselves snapped or even better, videoed in action at the recent biannual tournament. Many are seen running - the photographers didn't venture far into the leg-sapping terrain that often made up the greater part of the course!
QO were represented at the Yvette Baker Final at Westonbirt last Sunday.
Because of the success of the Junior Section over the last few years the Club has been designated a ‘Large’ club and competed in the Major Trophy competition.
Seven of our Juniors made the journey to the Cotswolds to compete in the complex network of paths, rides, and public spaces.
The fixtures for the next series, starting in the autumn, are starting to come together.
The South West Relays are starting on 20 June with the Wessex Team Score. Our club captain will be in touch shortly to arrange teams, but have a look and see if you can fit things into your diaries.
QO Juniors entered a team of 12 juniors into the Preliminary Round of the Yvette Baker Trophy competition on Sunday at the Mike Nelson BOKTROT Regional Event in the Mendips. Their score of 878 points compared to the winners, Bristol Orienteering Klub, of 898 points reflect an excellent set of results in all the age groups. Many thanks to our Club Captain, Pete Shirvington for putting the team together and to the Juniors for their individual performances after such a long period without events.
