Our next activity evening is at Woodlands Farm Trust, Shooters Hill, DA16 3RP, on Wednesday 30th November, 7.30 - 9 p.m. Andrew Evans will pose a few route choice problems from the recent Welsh 5 days event for members to consider, including a leg where his poor route choice led to a whopping time loss of 20 minutes. Then there will be an exercise for members working together in small groups to tackle a very recent route planning challenge. Details of future activity evenings.
Success in a far away place
Sheralee Bailey won the Australian Middle Distance championships in W45 today (October 2nd), held in the Cascade Mountains. Looking at routegadget, the terrain seems to be a complex mixture of rock pavements, boulders, open forest and denser stuff with plenty of undulations. She finished 90secs ahead of her nearest rival. Nice to see the DFOK name at the top of the results again. Well done Sheralee.
