EAOA Presentations 2021

Two smiling family - and SuffOC - members were photographed at the EAOA presentations during our Bury St Edmunds Urban event today. Sarah Mansel is pictured holding the Bill Stevens Trophy while her daughter Bronwen has the 2021 East Anglian Championship Women's Open Trophy, the latter won at the Regional Championships held at HAVOC's Epping Forest SW event on 26th September.

The Bill Stevens Trophy was created in memory of the SOS member who died in 1987; it is awarded annually for "for people who have contributed greatly to orienteering in the region at any level, often working in the background, and irrespective of competitive ability".

Our congratulations go to both Sarah and Bronwen!


The Club AGM, held after our recent event in Nowton Park, resulted in a few changes to the committee. We welcomed Simon as the new Chair, Clive and Sally as joint Secretary, and Adam as an additional committee member. Full details, including some additional non-committee Club roles, are listed on our Who's Who & Contacts page.

Will and Alison stood down as Chair and Secretary respectively and we would like to thank them for all the work they carried out on behalf of the Club.

Tunstall Forest

5th December 2021

It will be good to hold a forest event again! Tunstall is the most easterly of our mapped forest areas, & this will be in the "Central, AKA Viking" area, i.e. a different section to the one used for our last event at Tunstall in 2018. Martin has been quietly carrying out extensive re-mapping as lockdown has eased, and this is scheduled to be a Regional and East Anglia League event, with the full range of courses up to Brown. Further details will be available closer to the event.
