Two of our veteran members have tasted success in Europe! Peter and Ilze Yeates completed a two month orienteering extravaganza, taking in events in Latvia, Scotland, and Iceland during their travels. Pete placed third overall in the Icelandic Fire and Ice 3 days, in Reykjavik, after three consistent, error free performances in the lava fields.
Meanwhile, Ian and Debbie Dodd took part in events in Switzerland and Germany. Ian came second in the sprint race in Brugg, losing by a mere 2 seconds! He backed up the following weekend with a third place in the double header Sprint in Darmstadt, part of the German Park Tour.
One of the great things about orienteering is that you can easily compete overseas, and even plan your holiday around it. It’s a great way to make new friends and see places you may otherwise never visit. Go for it!
