Juniors at Compass Sport Trophy

Luke In The Forest

Good results in Dorset

Several of our juniors put in excellent performances at the Compass Sport Trophy at Moors Valley Country Park, near Ringwood on Sunday 12 March. We also had a good number of younger juniors doing well in the White and Yellow courses.

JOG at Ash Priors Common

Hugh On His Way

Surprisingly challenging area

We had a fine spring day to enjoy a relatively new area which offers a nice contrast to our other JOG venues. It's strangely reminiscent of the New Forest, the terrain is relatively flat with a patchwork of woodland and large clearings, bisected by minor roads and streams.

JOG at Fyne Court

What A Spot

Jim Nickolls planned some excellent courses around the lovely grounds of Fyne Court, which was looking at it's best, with clumps of stunning snowdrops and anemonies in flower. We were lucky with the weather, the sun managing to shine now and then!

JOG at Cothelstone Hill

Daniel And His Group Of Sea Scouts From Bridport

Ahoy- Sea Scouts visit

Thar she blows! Bridport Sea Scouts made a windy Cothelstone Hill their port of call at JOG this Saturday. Some of their crew sailed along at a good rate of knots to show they could mix it with our landlubbers

Queens College JOG

CJ sneaks past Shar And Friend

Junior training Sat 11 Feb

You had to be on the ball while running round the intricate combination of stairways, paths and alleyways between the buildings on the school site! The Fox course also explored parts of Comeytrowe, using questions as evidence of visiting a control. Who knew that street furniture such as lamp posts could be so useful in daylight?

Castle / B&T College JOG

Our picnic area base on Saturday

Junior training

The intricate network of buildings and passageways at Bridgwater & Taunton College and the adjoining Castle School kept our juniors focussed on Saturday. This concrete labyrinth provided a stern test for those daring to try Jim Mallinson's fiendish memory map exercise. Even the Hare course provided a significant navigational challenge to our smallest runners.

Culm Davy JOG

Joe Andrew And Jacob Run To The Finish

Juniors training

Taking advantage of a lovely sunlit wood the day before Sunday's downpour! Training alongside our juniors were some very good senior orienteers, attracted to this most runnable and pretty part of the Blackdowns

Netherclay JOG

Electronic download station, Netherclay

Football's loss is our gain

Footy matches were getting postponed locally due to frozen pitches and our numbers were bolstered by some of those younger footballers! No such problems with our "playing field", just nice crisp conditions for a Saturday afternoon run. Not that you'd think it was icy judging by those collecting their JOG awards in short sleeves.
