North West Night League 2013

It is fast approaching the time of year when orienteers take to local parks and countryside, armed only with a map, compass and headtorch.  The dates for the league are below - all Saturday evenings - check the local club websites for more details.
SROC Nov 30th 2013 Low Park Wood, near Kendal
PFO Dec 7th 2013 Dean Clough, Great Harwood
LOC 11th Jan 2014 Great Tower, near Windermere
MDOC 18th Jan 2014 Dovestone, Greenfield.
DEE 8th Feb 2014 Delamere East
SELOC 1 Mar 2014 Tandle Hill, Oldham

In addition, PFO are hosting a couple of warm-up events which SELOC members are invited to. See the PFO website for more details. These are at Towneley Park on Thursday 21 November and Clowbridge on Thursday 28th November.

Winter Street League

The street league season has got well underway, with SROC and MDOC both hosting series. There have been two events in the SROC series, including the very successful event in Wigan South hosted by SELOC and Mark Sammon, Josh Sammon & Darren Baker in particular.
The SROC series continues in Blackpool on 20th November. Strictly Come Dancing recently went in to a crazed hyperbole about the opportunity to dance in Blackpool and the same should arguably be the case for the orienteering event with the Blackpool Tower Trophy up for grabs. The series then moves on to Bolton another event hosted by SELOC on Weds Dec 4th. 
These are score events with 60 or 75 minute options. You are supplied a simple map of the streets and have to collect as many points as you can in your predetermined time limit. Penalty points for being late back. Highly competitive, great winter training and good fun! Torch essential! and

Compass Sport Trophy

Advanced notice of the date for the big club competition of 2014. Last year we came so close to beating our close rivals PFO in the heat and go through to the final and it would be great to be as competitve next year. This require all club members to join the squad in the Irwell Valley (very close to home this year) on Sunday 16th February.

Club Championship Race

The club championship race will this year be included in the EPOC event on Sunday 22nd December at Storthes Hall (wrongly advertised as Rishworth Moor in last newsletter). Prizes will  be awarded at the SELOC Christmas event and lunch in the week between Christmas and New Year. There will be prizes for the best junior boy and girl, senior man and women with special recognition of the best club performance on the day - who will it be?
