Two smiling family - and SuffOC - members were photographed at the EAOA presentations during our Bury St Edmunds Urban event today. Sarah Mansel is pictured holding the Bill Stevens Trophy while her daughter Bronwen has the 2021 East Anglian Championship Women's Open Trophy, the latter won at the Regional Championships held at HAVOC's Epping Forest SW event on 26th September.
The Bill Stevens Trophy was created in memory of the SOS member who died in at an event in 1987; it is awarded annually for "for people who have contributed greatly to orienteering in the region at any level, often working in the background, and irrespective of competitive ability". Other recent SuffOC recipients include Paul Lowe, Clive Wilkinson and Andrew Elliott: the full list can be seen here.
Our congratulations go to both Sarah and Bronwen!
