Holmsley '16- Green course- John Trayler (pink) & Pete Akers (orange)

Penulitimate SW league event of season

Nine QO members managed to make it to the Galoppen on the edge of the New Forest at Holmsley on quite fast heathland. Some of our members have put their routes on RouteGadget. Run of the day was probably Tony Milroy's on Short Green.

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?

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.
