Bill Stevens Trophy 2017

The EAOA AGM was held after SuffOC's summer event at Ipswich High School, Woolverstone on Sunday and our congratulations go to Andrew Elliott who was presented with the Bill Stevens Trophy. This trophy is awarded annually to someone who has contributed greatly to orienteering in East Anglia, often by working in the background, & Andrew has been the EAOA treasurer for some time, in addition to carrying out the same role for our club.

ESSOL 2016 - 2017

The final event in the Essex & Suffolk Schools 'O' League took place at Wivenhoe last weekend and there were several SuffOC Juniors on the podium. Although not everyone was present on Sunday, individual age-category awards for their perfomances across the series of events went to: Barney (First place), Bronwen (Second place), Theo, Ben, Tim and Jack (Third place). In addition, Alice and Lottie were placed First and Third respectively from the Barnardiston Hall entries. Congratulations, everyone!

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 - & there will also be an additional challenge for those with more experience. Everyone will start at together 10:45 and electronic timing with SI cards will be used (newcomers will be able to borrow these). Advice & coaching will be available; full details in due course.

For SuffOC members, the 2017 AGM will be held at Blackbourne Centre, Elmswell at 12:00
