It went down to the final relay but Wessex pipped us in the end on their own patch. Apart from that, it was a great series with three relays wins for us at Devon, Sarum and our own events.
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.
QO recruited some urban orienteering specialists for our Warminster Garrison test and we won the Moonraker Trophy for the first time! In doing so, we kept our prospects of a series win alive. The juniors won their relay and our other seniors were third.
