Poole Town race
SEOUL, 18 June
Great results for Sam & Andrew, winning their classes and Jacob a confident 4th! Every second counts, as Andrew won by just one second. The junior course action took place in a glorious park.
Let's hope not many people wanted to do the permanent course today - there was a course invasion (see picture below)...

Andrew's win today keeps him in second place in the South of England urban league (SEOUL). In what currently looks to be a three horse race, Andrew is splitting two runners from Thames Valley OC. The older of the two TVOC boys is still the current league leader, as up until the Poole race he had won all his races.
A veterinary college campus near the Mendips played host to the latest urban event in Bristol OK's summer series. QO fielded two 'vets' in Graham Hartley and Rosie Wych, with Graham winning his Green course in under half an hour and by five minutes over the runner-up.
We asked you to come up with a suitable caption for the swarm of ducks surrounding the permanent course control and liked the following entries:
"Hey Jim what IOF symbol shall we put on the map for control C"
"Super vets? Could they take a look at my broken wing, then?"
"Can't map read? Don't worry mate, just wing it, like we do"
"Remember your ISSOM symbols - we can't go in, because it's marked as an uncrossable lake"
Unfortunately, as they were received after the deadline of Friday 23rd, these potential winning entries were disqualified.
