New events for this summer..

In addition to our normal Simon Peck Summer Series we're pleased to announce 4 additional Park-O events - aimed at families, juniors & adults who are newcomers to the sport - on Saturday afternoons in Bury St Edmunds this summer.

All our Summer events are described in our Events Newsletter, available to download if you haven't already signed up to out mailing list.

Suffolk Schools Orienteering Championships 2019

This year's Suffolk Schools Orienteering Championships were held on Thursday 23rd May. There had previously been regional heats in Eye, Beyton & Mildenhall & nine teams from seven schools had qualified for the final, held for the third year running at the Thorpe Woodlands Adventure Centre in Thetford Forest.

Congratulations to all who took part, particularly to the teams from Debenham who achieved 1st place in the individual pairs event and who also won the team competition and to the Roughham & Charsfield teams who were placed 2nd & 3rd respectively. The complete report and results list can be downloaded from our website.

EAOA Championships 2019

We had beautiful weather in Sheringham Park for the EAOA championships last Sunday. Peter & Steve had created some excellent courses in what is one of East Anglia's most "technical" areas (tricky contours, in other words!). Congratulations to Bronwen on her win in the W21 age class. The other class winners can be viewed here and the overall results on the Norfolk OC website.

SuffOC League 2018

Belated congratulations to our 2018 Club League prizewinners: Clive (Seniors, 1st place), Sarah (Seniors, 3rd, & 1st Lady), Barney & Tim (Juniors, joint 1st place) & Chloe (Juniors, 3rd, & 1st Lady). Holding presentation ceremonies has proved to be a little difficult, but we've now managed to catch up with all except Tim at different orienteering events (some of them on a very wet Knettishall Heath!). The final results can be seen here.

Knettishall Heath

We had several first-timers at our Knettishall event: Tracie, Chloe & Orlando have uploaded a record of their experiences on the Orange course here.

Maps: If you kindly gave your White or Brown map to another competitor at the event - thank you for helping, & our apologies that it was necessary - it's so difficult to predict numbers!

You can download a copy of the relevant map from the links below:

We also found a carrier bag containing a pair of shoes & gloves. Apparently it had been left at a previous event - maybe the recent WAOC or CUOC event - & brought to Knettishall in case the owner was looking for it. If yours, please email knettishall@suffoc.co.uk
