Compass Sport Trohpy Success

Well done to everyone who competed at the Compass Sport Trophy at Irwell Valley on 16 February. It was another great squad performance and built on our strong showing in 2013, when we narrowly missed out to local rivals PFO. This year we achieved almost an identical score despite a few key squad members being unavailable. This shows how much the squad is improving at the current time.

This year we lost out unfortunately to SROC. This is a club with exceptional talent and realistically it may be a few years before we can compete with them. Nonetheless we can be very proud of our performance and the main thing is to keep enjoying our orienteering and encouraging friends and family to join us!

Junior Squad in action

The SELOC junior squad will be competing at the Yvette Baker team competition on the 16th March. This is the first time in many years we will have enough juniors for a team, which is very exciting. There are now several juniors able to train every Monday night in Bolton at the weekly club nights.
It would be great if other club members could support our juniors in this competition by attending the DEE event which it is part of at Frodsham on Sunday 16 March, which is a Level C event for everyone. 

GMOA Committee

The Greater Manchester Orienteering Association is a voluntary organisation which sets up and develops Permanent Orienteering Courses in Greater Manchester. It relies on income from map sales and grant funding to implement its strategies. SELOC benefits enormously from the existence of GMOA as it means the local park maps we use at many of our events are continually being kept up to date. There is also a significant bank balance, which if GMOA were ever to be disbanded would be split between the two founding clubs - MDOC and SELOC.
All members of SELOC and MDOC are members of GMOA and representatives of the two clubs are on the GMOA committee.  SELOC currently have 3 members who regularly attend the GMOA committee meetings but if anyone else would like to get involved then let us know.

Lakes 5 Days

There will be a special 5 days of orienteering in the Lake District this year, between Sunday 3rd and Friday 8th August. See http://www.lakes5.org.uk/ for more information.
SELOC will be assisting the other north west clubs with the organisation of at least one day and it would be great if as many club members as possible can be there to help. This is important for the club as we will get a split of the profits from the competition for helping. I will let you know as soon as we know which day we will be helping on.
