Club News:

Celebrations!

Congratulations to our Juniors who took part in this year’s Peter Palmer Junior Relay competition at Sutton Park, Sutton Coldfield on 10th September. Of the 25 teams participating in the event, two were from SuffOC (the second entered jointly with SMOC). Following on from their success in 2016, the SuffOC first team were again awarded the Norwich Anniversary Trophy for the highest-placed small club - definitely a cause for Celebrations!

Full results can be found on the COBOC website, with additional photos on Facebook.

JIRC 2017

Congratulations to our SuffOC members - Barney, Matthew, Tim & Chloe - selected to be part of the team representing East Anglia at the Junior Inter Regional Championships on the North Downs in September.

Good luck to all those participating!

Our Next Events:

Haughley Park

23rd September 2017

The final event in our 2017 Simon Peck Summer Series will be held in the popular Haughley Park, near Stowmarket. Beginners are welcome to "Come & try orienteering" in a rural parkland & woodland setting & will learn to do a "score event" - which means visiting as many controls as you can in the time allowed (45 minutes). There will also be an additional challenge - the Chase course - for those with more experience. Registration will be from 10:00 to 10:30: everyone on the Chase course will start together at 10:45 and those on the normal score course at 11:00. Electronic timing with SI cards will be used (newcomers will be able to borrow these).

Training: this time we're offering the possibility of someone shadowing you if you're not very experienced. The "shadow" will follow you without helping (unless you're totally stuck!!) & give you constructive advice afterwards. If you're interested please contact Will Harrison at coach_will@suffoc.co.uk

For SuffOC members, the 2017 AGM will be held at Blackbourne Centre, Elmswell at 12:30

The King's Forest

Following on from the 2016 event in King's Forest NW, this event will be in the north-eastern section of the forest, to the east of the B1106. This will have the normal range of colour-coded courses up to 'Brown' & is also on the ESSOL calendar for 2017/18. This could be combined with a visit to West Stow Country Park for the family. Further details in due course.
