It's the Gruffalo's 20th birthday on Saturday and he's going to be celebrating in the deep dark woods at Parham. Horsham District Council's Year of Culture Gruffalo will be trying out some Orienteering this weekend. See if you can snap a photo of him lurking around the woods on the yellow course and upload your sighting to www.globalgruffalo.co.uk!
With the final so close to home this year both us and SLOW were clearly aiming for a win at the qualifying heat held in the Ashdown Forest today. Fortunately our large team, breadth of strength and good performances on the day saw us through. Some more analysis will follow later but for now: Oct 20th - SAVE THE DATE
Thirty of our junior members took part in the south east heat of the Yvette Baker Trophy competition. They competed on yellow, orange, light green and green courses. They won by 8 points over closest rivals Guildford Orienteers.
Following the SE Relays Event on 12th May at Addington Heights, club member Ed Forman and his wife Debbie invite you to the nearby Vicarage garden at Addington Village for a social and barbecue.
Barbecue facilities will be available, bring your own food and drink (the hosts will provide some Pimms and salads). Roughish croquet, themed treasure hunt and other activities will be laid on!
Timings to be confirmed when we have more precise details about the venue and times for the SE Relays.
Volunteers are the heart of our club. Every event is run by volunteer club members and all are encouraged to get involved. It's a great way to learn new skills and get to know your fellow Southdowners a little better.
