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.


Derek Jenner, Helen Hampton, Mark Ford (2nd Brown, 100 pts), Josh Jenner (5th Brown), Kostya Lutsenko, Tim Pribul (4th Green Men), Tom Edelsten, Alison Curtis, Caitlin Campbell, Alice Campbell (100 pts), Owen Haigh, Ruby Campbell, Jennifer Talyor (4th, Short Green, 100 pts)

    Special mention:

Owen Haigh (M10) who scored points running up on Orange.
Lachlan Haigh (1st) on Yellow.
Marcus and Alex Blowers who also had great runs on Yellow.
Emma Blowers who completed the Blue Women’s course having joined CHIG only last year.
Helen Hampton who also scored points running up on Blue Women.

New Members

A warm welcome to Mike, Kate, Oliver and Jocelyn Brett in Leytonstone. The Bretts were LOK members, but have been connected with the club for some time. So it’s great news that they’re now fully competitive members. Indeed Mike is taking over as the new club captain. I wish him and CHIG every success (and luck, if needed!) in the coming years.
