The Club Championships were held on Saturday 10th December at Concord Park. It was a very cold day, but at least there wasn't snow on the ground like last year. The format was a handicap score-type event (controls in any sequence) with each competitor given a target number of controls
The new club champions are Philip Wiegand (junior – very closely followed by his brother Adam), Gemma Tate (w) and Kevin Randall (m). More details on the event page.
These photos just after the mass start and of Gemma finishing were taken by Ray Waight. Some more photos taken by Chris Littler can be seen on the photo page (go to the 'Members area' menu item and select 'Photos').

Today at EBOR's event at Ashdale Forest SYO's junior team qualified for the Yvette Baker Trophy final which is to be held at Mausoleum Woods (HALO) on Sunday 4th December. They had a 9 point lead over 2nd placed CLARO who only just pipped AIRE by 2 points.
Our juniors were helped by (junior) wins on the Green Boys, Light Green Girls and Orange Girls. On the Green course, Aidan, Zac and Michael secured 1st, 2nd and 3rd places respectively with several minutes lead.
This is the 3rd year in a row that SYO's juniors have qualified for the Yvette Baker Trophy Final. Congratulations to them all for their runs today and good luck at the final!

Today SYO won the British Orienteering Club Championships very comfortably, with 2224 points, 161 points more than second place Octavian Droobers.
Congratulations to all our runners. Oli Johnson and Rob Baker have had a particularly successful weekend, being members of the Dark Peak Fell Runners team that won the FRA relay the previous day.
There were a couple of items of lost property: a pair of New Balance trainers and a watch. Please contact me (petergorvett on Hotmail.co.uk) to arrange return. Please contact Tim Tett if you didn't get a chance to collect your map.

Congratulations to SYO's junior team who came 2nd at the Peter Palmer Relays on Sunday in Stafford. The juniors were just beaten by Lakeland by 2 minutes and are determined to reclaim the Peter palmer Trophy next year.
The Peter Palmers are an overnight relay for juniors that start in the early morning when it is dark and by the time the last runner is back it is light. This year's event was organised by British Army Orienteering Club for the second year in a row and the barracks presented an interested change from the more traditional rural areas.
Results are here.
