Our W60 team of Liz Godfree, Pauline Ward and Judith Holt retained the W60 trophy at the British Relays on Sunday (a mere half hour ahead of second placed OD!). At the individual event the previous day Liz won the W65 trophy with David Parkin winning the M80, Sarah Duckworth was second on W12 and Amy Kimberley won W18L.
The club has booked 32 beds (plus evening meal) at Welsh Bicknor Youth Hostel for the night of Saturday 19th October before the Compass Sport Cup Final in the Forest of Dean (the Youth Hostel is about 20 minutes drive from the event). We have the entire annex of the hostel to ourselves. There is a mix of dormitory and smaller rooms. Cost is expected to be around £27/person.
First come first served, but I will need a deposit of £10 to guarantee your place as the club has to pay a deposit. Liz.Godfree@btinternet.com

Young People’s Survey
As part of the work of the Volunteer Needs Work Group, the group would like to seek the opinions of young people on volunteering in orienteering. David Maliphant, Director and member of the group, has developed a questionnaire.
This questionnaire is for young people aged 14-25. It will help British Orienteering to understand and improve the way young people are involved in our sport, and it would be really helpful if as many young people as possible could answer the questionnaire.
The results will be collated and used to help the British Orienteering Volunteer Needs Work Group produce a report and a series of recommendations to support volunteering opportunities in orienteering, including for young people.
For more information and to fill in the questionnaire, access the following link http://survey.cuoc.org.uk/. Many thanks!
The new O tops have had their first outings and impressions are good. Second order should be here soon. Now also available with long sleeves (probably about £25 as opposed to £20). Designs here and here . See the size chart on the Siven web site http://www.sivensport.com/#!chart but go up a size if you are at all doubtful as the measurements there appear to be of the top itself. Any more orders to me, the price may go up because of the exchange rate and fixed delivery charge.
