Adell and Doug entered the SWOA sprint championships at Blandford Forum
With Adell winning the W55, much to her surprise,as she was second overall, but the the course winner was not a SWOA member.
The NWO team of ( l. to r.) Doug Stimson , Adell Cooper, and Rob Buckby gained second place in the relays held on Shaw Ridge, Swindon on June 19th.
They were only a minute behind the winning team from TVOC and were the top team among the South West clubs.

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!”

Thank you very much to NWO for assisting at the National Coaching Conference this year. Without the club’s help, I don’t think we could have put it on at all – this was invaluable – Christine Vince, Chairman, South West Orienteering Association
