A 22-strong team from NWO entered the inter-club heats in the New Forest and gained fifth position.
Club juniors made a significant contribution to the club score. Best performance was by Club Champion Doug Stimson with second place in the Trophy Brown course less than a minute off the pace.

To celebrate 50 years of orienteering in the South West NWO put on Try Orienteering Event at Hardenhuish Park in Chippenham. This consisted of 6 events, including a maze, a treasure hunt, a photo course, a sprint , a score and a 2.4 k course. Times for the three courses are listed under Results
Congratulations to Paul Gebbett who won the combined event (sprint, score and 2.4km) in 43:05.
Newcomer Ian Trussler posted: “I do believe in trying new things occasionally. Today was the first time I had tried orienteering. I wish I had tried it years ago. It’s everything I love – a run in nice countryside, some technical map-reading (not TOO technical but the better you are, the less mistakes you make!) and some really nice people. Not my last orienteering event!”
