Compass Sport Trophy

The club competed in the Compass Sport Trophy this year at Sherwood Pines in Nottinghamshire. This is the club competition, which requires the whole club to turn up and compete together to beat the other teams.  As in recent years, the whole squad performed marvelously well. This year we finished 2nd out of 8 teams in our competition for small clubs.  It must be the benefit of our weekly orienteering school, which is helping us to improve the squad year on year.

The juniors did absolutely great. There were Lucy Seddon, Robert Seddon and Josh Sammon on Orange and Oliver Heib on Green.  The young adults are really strong now, whilst there were strong performances from Mark Seddon, Kevan Latham and others of more mature years! 

Unfortunatley we didn't qualify for the final this year but the way we are improving it can't be far away.

JK Easter Weekend

A very big orienteering festival is coming to the North West this Easter 3rd to 7th April. On Good Friday, SELOC are helping with the organisation to put on a sprint race around the grounds of Lancaster University. There are anticipated to be 1000s of people in attendance so this is a massive event to be involved in. 

Orienteering is predominantely run by volunteers and without them events like this just wouldn't be possible. Everyone should feel really proud to be part of this as it is really quite an achievement to help put on these events.  

You can find more details on the weekend at JK.
