NWOC Club Championship 2017 Results

The NWOC Handicap Championships took place at Carnfunnock Country Park near Larne on the 18th November. We used the last of the LVO Autumn Series Events so no one had to miss out through planning or controlling. I think everyone there would agree it was a really nice parkland area – with many unusual features such as the giant model train set which I briefly got trapped in! The crisp clear weather afforded beautiful views over the North Channel. Getting to visit and enjoy places like this is one of the great boons of our sport.

Many thanks to LVO for a very enjoyable (and demanding) event. I am sure I entered Green but there were times on the long legs and steep climbs it felt quite  blue!

Finally thanks to our Handicapper David  who crunched the numbers with total impartiality!

Club Winter Orienteering Fixtures

Just two club events left between now and the end of 2017. The first is our Club Championships which will use an LVO event at Carnfunnock Country Park on the Antrim Coast Road just North of Larne. Probably a new venue for most club members – but one well worth checking out.

Our traditional Xmas Event returns to Ballykelly Forests (North and South)! This also features the club meal and AGM in the Drummond Hotel.
