Wavering Galoppen

Wavering Down, from Crook Peak (Mendips)

Fitting finale to season

A fabulous day was had up on the Mendips in very fine weather. Winscombe's busy cricket/sports ground provided a vibrant base, with cake and clothes stalls and a BBQ. Nice luxuries to help the 20 QO's recover from physical courses and a long walk to the start/finish.

Where's that knoll? Tricky control 1 on Green (John Trayler's GPS route, with traffic light colours denoting running speed)

South West League

With the best in the South West distracted by the British Orienteering Champs in Yorkshire, there was a good chance for the rest to gain extra points at Rushmore on Sunday. Pete Shirvington and Bill Vigar in particular each took full advantage.
