EA Championships 2017

Congratulations to our six age-class winners - Theo, Chloe, Tim, Bronwen, Roderick and Andrew - at the 2017 EA Championships at Rushmere on Sunday..

Compass Sport Trophy

There was a sizeable contingent from SuffOC at the Compass Sport Trophy area heat on the Ashridge Estate in the Chilterns last weekend. At the end of the event it appeared that SuffOC had won the heat, but then came the announcement that there were some anomalies so the scores needed to be rechecked. After a nail-biting week the results have now been finalised and yes, SuffOC really did win against the 8 other clubs: together with SAX we have qualified for the final. Congratulations, everyone, we now have a fantastic opportunity to participate in the Level A final in October!

The final will be held on Sunday 22nd October at Virtuous Lady (named after a disused mine), near Yelverton. Devon Orienteering has already set up a webpage with a link to the map and the list of qualifying clubs for both the Trophy and the Cup can be found here.

Our Next Events:

Beccles Common

1st May 2017

An additional date for our calendars - SuffOC & Beccles Town Council are jointly holding a May Day event on Beccles Common. The details are still to be finalised, but the event centre and parking is likely to be at the sports club with orienteering courses starting on The Avenue. This is an ideal opportunity for those wishing to try a new activity and the proceeds will be used to help restore The Avenue, a feature dating from the 19th Century.

Gunton Denes & Dip Farm

11th June 2017

The first event in our 2017 Simon Peck Summer Series, & a chance to visit the seaside at Lowestoft! The mapped area covers the dunes & the clifftop, so it won't be our usual forest or parkland event. Beginners are welcome to "Come & try orienteering" & there will also be a course for the more experienced. Advice & coaching will be available; full details in due course. Buckets & spades & a picnic for post-event relaxation optional.
