Yvette Baker Trophy Final - December 7th
Congratulations to all of the junior team at the regional round at Richmond Park, and Heather as on-the-day manager. We have now qualified for the national final at High Ash, near Thetford, Norfolk. This is the best junior orienteering event in Britain. Juniors are the focus of the day, while adults have to take a back seat!
The scoring is the same as for the regional round. This means that you can still compete on a course appropriate to your ability (based on whether you have achieved a gold badge), not just your age. The courses are from Yellow to Green, & young non-gold juniors can compete in pairs on the yellow. So that means you can have a valuable run for the team, without too much pressure - our best nine juniors count.
I would like as many juniors as possible to come along. This is a great occasion for the SLOW juniors & we should make the most of our opportunity to mix it with the other teams from around the country. My ideal is for all of the club's juniors to be there - you will all enjoy it! And you can all make a contribution to the team's success.
The club will pay the entry fees. We are also considering hiring a (subsidised) coach to take us there. So please contact Pete Huzan () as soon as you can to say whether you will be able to come along, & whether you like the idea of travelling by coach.
Best wishes Pete Huzan (SLOW captain)
