Two teams represented QO in the NGOC 2x2 relay on a sweltering Saturday on Leckhampton Hill, home of The Devil's Chimney, near Cheltenham.
The forecast wind and rain showers did not put off a good turnout of QOs from making the journey to the Gower, South Wales, to enjoy technical terrain and a friendly welcome from Swansea Bay OC.
14 QO juniors put up a strong challenge on a sweltering Wavering Down
We would like to invite all club juniors to join the Quantock Orienteers Junior Squad at the Yvette Baker Trophy Heat on Sunday 8th May
15 QOs headed to Sussex at the weekend to take part in individual long and team relays doubleheader competing against some of the best British orienteers.
A QO team finished ahead of two teams from 2018 Compass Sport Cup winners South Yorkshire Orienteers (SYO) in the Lockdown Team weekend. We may have only been using mice, PCs and phones, but any win over one of the UK's mightiest clubs counts, doesn't it?
Club away day
The novelty of hiring a luxury coach that doubled up as a changing room, warm up area and entertainment lounge was amongst the highlights of this fun club away day. Many folks ran in a different course class than usual but the results were still good.
Because of our new and rather unrealistic status as a "big" club, our captain Chris Hasler has an extra challenge this year making up a full team to take part in the heat near Gloucester on Sunday 15 March. Please email Chris ASAP if you'd like to take part.
Throughout the year, there are events where you can compete as part of teams representing the club.
