As many of you know, SROC is developing a web team to manage this site.  As part of this Chris Roberts is taking charge of all results.  To send results directly to Chris, please email them to results@sroc.org.  The results may be published before they are announced on this page, so please keep checking the Club Results page for the current year.

Route Gadget is a new and innovative development in reviewing orienteering events and looking at results.  It allows people to trace their own routes run and compare them with other competitors.  So you can compare your run with other people's.  There is even animation, allowing you to watch yourself running your route whilst others run theirs.  We've set up and initial trial using the New Year Cracker Event to compare.  It doesn't matter too much if you can't remember your exact route for the New Year event (it is 6 weeks later!), but just take the time to try it out and get familiar with the system.  The next event where it will be used will be at the National Event at Whitbarrow.

Half way through this season's Lancashire School Orienteering Association league events and there are still 3 events to go.  If you haven't ever entered then these are fun, yet competitive events for you to take part in and even score points for your School (no, not you Dad!  You've got to go to school to run in the competition!)  Check out the next events via the LSOA events list on the results page.  (If you get a lift from your Dad or Mum, then you could let them run too - if they think they can handle it!)

We are very sorry that Dave Kesby, our webmaster, and his family are moving on to forests new in Winchester, around July time. This creates a vacancy for someone to join the web team - which currently consists of Jane Collins, Chris Roberts, John Denmark and Dave Kesby.  This is an exciting opportunity to play a part in this new team, and to develop your web-skills along with the website.  Prior knowledge of website design and management is not a requirement, more is the willingness to learn as part of the team. Feel free to call Dave for a chat about what part you could play in the team.  If you are reading this, then you will already know what a vitally important part the web plays in our Club and the need to build a successful web team
