End of Year Rankings
With the start of 2019 we can have a little look back at how klubb members have performed in 2018. The British Orienteering website contains details of the national ranking system and the Current Ranking list can be found under the ‘Go Orienteering’ drop-down list. Your individual results can be found in ‘MyAccount’ and in ‘My Results’.
DFOK has thirty six members listed in the national rankings and the top ten klubb performers over the last year at ranking events are as follows, together with their change in score over the twelve months:
|1st||Antoine Pesenti||196th||7658 (up from 7649)|
|2nd||Sheralee Bailey||786th||7048 (up from 7022)|
|3rd||David Lobley||799th||7032 (up from 7013)|
|4th||Mark Collins||882nd||6968 (down from 7330)|
|5th||Andrew Evans||915th||6951 (up from 6913)|
|6th||Keith Bennett||930th||6932 (up from 6622)|
|7th||David Dorling||980th||6900 (down from 7041)|
|8th||Andrew Pitcher||1000th||6880 (up from 4551)|
|9th||Neil Speers||1035th||6853 (down from 6913)|
|10th||Rachel Collins||1193rd||6726 (down from 6936)|
30 club members converged on Thornton South today for the 2018 club championships. Thanks, HAVOC, for putting on another good event.
There were thrills and spills with the following emerging victorious:
|Blue Women||Sheralee Bailey|
|Blue Men||Keith Bennett|
|Green Women||Julie Lobley|
|Green Men||David Dawson|
|Yellow Girls||Madeleine Pitcher|
|Yellow Boys||Luke Bennett|
Congratulations to all of you. Trophies will be presented at the club AGM on Wednesday, 17th October. Details of the arrangements for the AGM will be added to our website shortly.
World Orienteering Championships in Latvia
The Orienteering Foundation, a registered charity, is supporting the GB team at this year's World Championships in Latvia 4th-11th August. The GB team get a little help from British Orienteering (entry fees and accreditation are paid for). Athletes have to fund everything else – travel and accommodation, transport to the races and so on; in addition many have travelled in advance to Latvia to join training camps set up by other nations. If you wish to support the team, please can you send a donation and a message to the team here. You can also follow the team On The Red Line.
Elite Sport Funding
UK Sport has published a consultation on elite sports funding and I would encourage all club members to respond well before the consultation closes on 19 August.
