Quiz Results

Many thanks for entering the quiz, winners were Ed Lines and Heather Smithard. Some questions were easy with a bit of googling, others required a bit of lateral thinking. The hardest question was about Quentin’s training which resulted in answers from none to well over 24 hours a week.

Reserve Area

The last two Lakes 5 day events have suffered from severe weather issues and involved cancelling one of the day events. This year we have planned a reserve day in an effort to ensure that we have ‘5’ days of orienteering. If possible the reserve area will be used on the same day as the event it replaces however in the event of this not being possible; the reserve area may be used on the Saturday.
