We're running both an introductory organiser's course and an event safety course. The venue is in Taunton on Saturday 7 September. To register your interest, please contact Roger & Judy Craddock.
We need more attending to make these courses viable, so please don't hesitate in signing up!
Three QO, Martin Lewis plus Pete and Jacob Shirvington enjoyed a grand tour of Yorkshire in mid August. A bit of poetic licence is being applied to the series name by the organisers though on Wednesday evening there actually was a race round a castle!
Saturday 31 August
The buffet and prize giving for the Forest League and other competitions will precede this year's Annual General Meeting. All these things are being held at the Lord Nelson Inn, Norton-sub-Hamdon (not Stoke-sub-Hamdon, as previously published), following the Club Championships.
At Ham Hill
On Wednesday 24 July Pete Akers and Tony Hext organised a CATI (come and try it) event as part of South Somerset’s Pop-up Museum and Activity Calendar.
Thanks to Tony Hext for the following report.
- Martin Lewis and Pete Shirvington have registered for the Race the Castles series in Yorkshire- but not all nine days in a row, which includes urban, middle distance, woodland and even indoor events!
- One of our leading orienteers Brian Fletcher reports that he is hoping to return to orienteering next year
There are usually six or seven relays held throughout the South West typically in small woods, country parks and urban areas.
All relays are on Sundays and some even have a BBQ or social afterwards.
