CompassSport Cup 2012 Report

Team GRAMP came third in the CompassSport Cup competition today, 59 points behind arch rivals (and friends) MAROC who in turn lost to ESOC by a mere 11 points. Congratulations to ESOC who now go through to the final in September.

Thanks to everyone who heeded the clarion call and turned out for the club, especially Foss and Erik who got up at 5:30 this morning for the 284-mile round trip!

Well done to Felix Späth, a very recent new member, and Sasha for gaining the maximum points for their respective classes and all the other GRAMPs who backed them up (a full list and course results etc is available here) not least Keith Yardley and Lachlan Kirk who kept their heads and put in solid performances against the MAROC M14- runners. Some of us plodded too slowly to make a mark, others blew up mid-course, some picked up the wrong map and some just couldn’t make it on the day but even taking all that into account I still don’t think we could have matched ESOC’s performance had everything gone according to plan.

Thanks also to Evgueni for chauffering the minibus and accomodating Pete’s demands for a later departure so he could have a few more minutes in bed (Foss and Erik were not impressed by such lack of moral fibre) and also to the Gomersalls for providing top notch tea/cake/blethering venue after the event.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
