Congratulations to 4 of our SELOC juniors Robert, Toby, Lucy and Theo who all faced the torrential rain and competed in the IRONKIDS event in Bolton today (19th July).  We're pleased (and very proud) to say that we had not 1 but 2 winners in their age classes - Well Done Robert and Toby.

First SELOC Wedding - ever!

Dr Joe and Dr Rachel Mercer were the first SELOC couple to tie the knot when they married at Chapeltown church on 12 July in beautiful weather. They have since honeymooned in Sweden - not orienteering but adventure kayaking. There must be something in the air as the second SELOC wedding between Matt Driver and Rhian Glover will be coming along in December of this year!

News - May 2014

Strinesdale, Oldham (Race - 17th May)

The May race has been moved forward to Saturday 17th May. This is to avoid the British Championships at the end of the month and the Bank Holiday the intervening weekend. This is an area we haven't visited for a while so really looking forward to it. Alison Etherden has planned yellow, orange and light green courses. Starts from 10am to 12 noon. More info ...

Saturday Park Series

The SELOC Saturday Series moves back to the Oldham area for the next two events, following a very successful run of 3 events in the Wigan area to start 2014.  First up is Alexandra Park on Saturday 26th April (Planner Matt Driver), followed by Strinesdale on Saturday 17th May - note the new date (Planner Alison Etherden).

PFO/SELOC Bowling

The PFO/SELOC bowling rematch will now definitely not be on Saturday 17th May.  This date gradually came to clash with more and more events and so the bowling has been postponed till later in the summer - Saturday 5th July.
