The Compass Sport Cup is a club competition where the top 25 scorers across the full range of courses from Brown to Orange and where all runners can play their part by knocking points of our competitors, so it will be great to get a big turn out so ALL MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO RUN. BOK finished 3rd in the competition last year and won in 2013 and 2014. This year will be a great opportunity to try to get the Cup back as the final is to be held in October on Dartmoor. But, first we need to get everyone out to beat our local rivals, North Gloucestershire.
Our qualifying round this year will take place at Fonthill near Tisbury in Wiltshire on Sunday 15th March. It would be good to get everyone out to start the defence of the trophy and we will be up against stiff competition from Southampton, Devon and Berkshire. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to run. Please provide BO number, age class and EMIT (not SI) number if you have one.

With the event being local this year and BOK are organising it, it would be great to get our strongest team possible out. I have put a request for entries in the latest BOK news which details the courses and age classes that competitors are expected to run to score for the club.
BOK convincingly won the SW regional qualifying round in the Compass Sport Cup at Studland in Dorset on Sunday and will now run in the Final in the Forest of Dean on October 20th. A large group of club members heeded the call to run and they were rewarded by some excellent results against tough competition provided by SOC, DEVON, and NWO. It was very good to see a full coach and an almost equal number who went by car.

We know it's a long way off (calender and distance wise) and summer has only just arrived, but Paul Gebbett needs to start looking into Coach and accommodation .....
