The club has decided to provide on-line entry for all our day events in 2017. It is now available for all events up to March at the same cost as entry on the day, at http://www.fabian4.co.uk. This will save competitors having to queue at registration and fill in a paper entry form. Instead those with their own dibber will be able to go directly to the start. It will also ensure that competitor's details are correctly recorded, thereby helping ensure league and ranking results are correct.
My November Challenge was won jointly by Howard and Tereza who each attended 8 events. I will be presenting their prizes of a bottle of wine at Long Valley on Sunday. The December challenge has been live on the club's Facebook Chat group for a while now. It is to see who has the fastest split from control 2 to 3 at any event for which split times are published. If you are not a member of the chat group why not go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/bristolok/ and apply now?
Congratulations to Mark Saunders on his selection by British Orienteering for the 2016 Silva Award. This is awarded annually to a person who has made a very significant contribution to orienteering over a period of years, with an emphasis on ‘field' activities rather than committee work.
