Eagley Valley Clubnight Review

SELOC members enjoyed a newly mapped area for their training session on the evening of Monday 12 August - Eagley Valley in north Bolton.

For the seniors there was an score event and the results are below:

Joe Mercer        15 mins
Mark Seddon     25 mins
Rachel Deegan   33 mins
Jason Middleton  34 mins
Paul Turner         38 mins
Joanna Treasure  55 mins

Juniors Toby and Theo Middleton, Josh Harrop, Lucy Seddon and Emily enjoyed finding a few simple controls on a less technical part of the map.

Clive Atty, the mapper and evening organiser, said he was pleased to see the map being used and seniors appreciating the challenge it presented, despite the rampant vegetation at this time of the year. One part of the map couldn't be used at all because of the vegetation.

It is rumoured the area the map may be used for a night orienteering training session later in the year?
