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.
Howgills, Lake District
Arising presumably fresh from their overnight camp, the Shirvingtons had a very impressive day 2, climbing 13 places to 47th of 115.
Harterfell Class- Overall results
The Modicas meanwhile climbed one place and clocked up 16.5 hours on the hills.
Sadly, the 2020 tournament has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus and organisational pressures.
Croeso occurs only once every four years, given the weight of effort organising an event in relatively remote terrain with limited manpower.
Ten QO have entered for the bi-annual summer holiday attraction, which will be in Perthshire, an hour's drive north of Glasgow.
