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!
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.
Congratulations to the 21 members who competed at the Scottish 6 Day event - Deeside 2017 - earlier this month. There's a table summarising our club results here and various photos have been collected & uploaded in a Facebook album.
Holywells Park is holding an afternoon of activities for families on Wednesday 16th August & our club will be supervising the orienteering section. It will be an excellent way to try orienteering - you can start whenever you like during the afternoon & you'll be given a printed map & some instructions. The challenge could to plan a route to find checkpoints in a particular order, or you could decide to do do a "find-as-many-controls-as-you-can" in a given time. Further details can be found here.
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.
