Northumberland, 1 & 2 July
Juniors, you did so well in the YBT qualifying round that it’s a possibility that we’ll go to the north east for the final- be there! If we do go, the venue has good contour detail and that is what Tess and Vikki's Thursday training sessions are now concentrating on.

The evening began with a warm up led by Tess and Angela. This was followed by a Clock Relay in French Weir Park and the Presentation of Certificates and Trophies in the COACH Building by QO President Mike Crockett.
Action from last event of season

Full steam ahead
The penultimate junior event of the season saw us at an established forest league venue overlooked by the Quantocks. The tooting steam trains arriving and departing from the vintage station nearby always lends something to the atmosphere...full steam ahead, JOGgers!
