All four teams, Knightshayes Court

So close!

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.

Overall Winners Status Qo

More wins!

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.
