MWOC AGM 20th September 2016 Bluebell Inn 7.30pm

Dear All 
Hope you have had a good summer - looking forward to seeing you all at the AGM and making plans for next year!
All members are really welcome to come and join us for the AGM at the Bluebell Inn in Llangurig - we lift share to travel to the meeting which is a central point for the club. 
It is a  great opportunity to find out what has been happening over the year and any exciting news and developments. We are really keen for everyone to join in with ideas and feedback for planning next years activities for the club. 
Food and drink available at the Bluebell Inn as usual - a good evening of quaffing, scoffing and laughing to be enjoyed along with orienteering matters if course.
Attached is an  agenda for the AGM but please do send me any other agenda items for the post AGM part of the meeting. 
Many thanks for taking part in  another great year of Mid Wales orienteering.

A warm welcome awaits you from Kate and the rest of the committee!

British Orienteering Long Distance Championships 2016

Kate O'Sullivan preparing for the British Champs,

MWOC members enjoyed great weather at the British Orienteering Long Distance Championships on Saturday 30th April at Brown Clee Hill in Shropshire. The terrain was very challenging with tricky navigation through the complex former mining areas and tough running through the rough marshy areas. Great panoramic views if you had time to enjoy them! Thanks for the great welsh atmosphere around the SWOC tent cheering in the welsh runners. Congratulations to Ben Mitchell from SBOC on coming 2nd in M21E and Claire Dallimore coming 3rd in W21E – great to see Wales performing so well!!

MWOC tent at Kilnsey JK 2016 - Welsh penguin huddl,

Well done to all the members of MWOC who travelled to Yorkshire to compete at the JK over the Easter weekend, which is the largest annual orienteering event held in the UK. Day one was a sprint event held at Leeds University, day two and day three were cross country events with the times added up over the two days, held at Wass Forest in the North Yorkshire Moors and Kilnsey in the Yorkshire Dales, with the relay being held at Storthes Hall close to Huddersfield.  The heavy hail, sleet and snow on the exposed Kilnsey was an added challenge for anyone running later in the day – well done to all and thanks to the MWOC tent for providing much needed shelter! The penguin huddle  of a record number of Welsh orienteers in a tent helped provide added warmth! Notable results from MWOC members were as follows -  Apologies if I have left anyone out

W12 4th Hannah Thomas – by 19 seconds!

W55 16th Kate O Sullivan

M16A 14th William Thomas

M18E 17th Joe Thomas

Fay Walsh- now a member of EUOC came 5th in W20E
