Congratulations to our 29 SuffOC members who competed at the 2018 JK events over the Easter weekend. The sprint event was held at MOD Stafford and the others on Cannock Chase. Weather conditions varied from 'Fine' to 'Wet, cold, muddy, misty, with a sprinkling of overnight snow'. The results summary can be seen here and selected photos on our Facebook page.
Congratulations to our seven age-class winners - Theo, Barney, Chloe, Matthew, Bronwen, Lizzie and Sally - at the 2018 EA Championships on 25th March in Writtle Forest. The event results are given on the SOS and EAOA websites, while our SuffOC winners are summarised here.
Matthew Clarke was also awarded the Joan George Trophy for the best performance by a Junior.
What will SuffOC members be doing on October 21st? A fair number of them will be orienteering on Cannock Chase, in the area marked in red on the map, competing in the final of the CompassSport Trophy. At the end of the Area Heats in Shouldham Warren on Sunday SuffOC found themselves in the lead of the Trophy section for smaller clubs, some 23 points ahead of the nearest rivals, Essex Stragglers. Norfolk OC also won the Cup section for larger clubs, so will be accompanying us to the final. Congratulations to all those who took part, and our thanks to the members of the various East Anglian clubs who helped to stage the event.
