Captain’s Blog – March 2009

Compass Sport Trophy Result CHIG came 4th, although only 15 pts behind 2nd place MV. Not as good a result as last year, but with some sterling individual performances and excellent prospects for our juniors, we may well be in a position to seriously challenge SOS next year. Scorers: Derek Jenner, Helen Hampton, Mark Ford […]

However, from what I can see from the results submitted to the British Orienteering website and Ranking List events, there weren’t any regional events in the south. Please […]
