Carriganore event

Waterford Orienteering club will host the next round of the SE short course orienteering series at Carriganore, WIT in Waterford City on Sunday 9th November. Grid reference S 559 116.
Start times from 11 to 1. Please let me know well in advance if you are bringing a group.
There will be extra maps on the day but participants are encouraged to register online. Here is the link to Google Docs
There is no pre payment and there is no worry if you cannot make it on the day. It just helps with planning numbers of maps.



Huge numbers participated at the Deise Days weekend.
Over 185 competed at Castlecomer Discovery Park with the newly mapped quarry section proving a big hit. Thank you to: Norman Storey who organised the parking with the able assistance of Linda; to Elizabeth and Angela for manning registration; Laura who looked after download; Pat Healy Controller; POC, Nigel and Andrew P on starts.

The Waterford Viking 1100 urban sprint race attracted 130 enthusiastic runners and walkers. Thanks to all those who manned the mandatory crossings including Jerry, Hugh and Alan; to Andrew as chief organiser on the day; Angela, Liisa, Jeni and Liz on the start; Laura and Jana on the computer; Elizabeth on registration. Apologies to anyone I forgot.
A fuller report of the weekend and pictures will be found on the blog shortly.
