Club Champs & Christmas Social - Saturday 2nd December
A slight extension has been negotiated to the deadline for signing up to lunch and orienteering..........
SYO Annual Club Champs, ‘Christmas Curry’, Social, AGM and Awards – Whirlowbrook Hall and HSBC Sports Club
The annual SYO fun orienteering event is on Saturday 2nd December starting at Whirlowbrook Hall (Ecclesall Road South, Sheffield S11 9QD). It is all very informal and a great opportunity to socialise and recognise those who have contributed to the club through volunteering and orienteering talent.
The event format is a handicapped score with a secret twist – runners are heavily handicapped to allow newcomers to compete against British Champions!
Members should gather from 10.45 ready to run at 11am from Whirlowbrook Hall. The score event will last around 50 minutes with the aim that everyone will finish at the same time. It is suitable for all, regardless of age or experience. There will also be a yellow course available for children and the less confident, (although children who can¹t complete a yellow on their own should be accompanied by an adult).
After the race, we will gather (around 12.45pm) at the HSBC Sports and Social Club (49 Hathersage Road, Dore, Sheffield. S17 3AA) for a substantial ‘Christmas Curry’ at 1pm. This will include a range of naans, poppadoms, onion bhaji and vegetable samosas. Lunch will be followed by a very brief AGM and the annual awards ceremony. You are very welcome to come just for the orienteering or just for the lunch if you prefer.
Costs: (payable on the day)
Lunch (run included) £10 adults and over 12s Curry
£7 children buffet 5-12
Free for under 5s.
(*Any children under 12 wishing to eat curry should sign up as an over 12)

So that we can notify the venue of numbers and calculate the handicapped courses, you must pre-enter by Wednesday 22nd November. Please respond via this link to enter.
Please come along and support your club. It would be fantastic to get as many members there as possible. Last year over 90 members attended - it will be great to beat that number this year!
