JK 2012 – a weekend of seconds

Just back from the JK and trawling through the results the overall impression is quite a few 2nds for GRAMP, some good personal performances from some and two 1sts – congrats to Sasha and Tim Gomersall for adding to their silverware collection! Some pretty tough terrain out there, not helped by a lot of recent windblow, made for some long days for some of us with quite a few knocks and sprains (oh and don’t forget the evil nettle patch at the relays) but the brain cells also took a hammering as it was generally good technical, tricky stuff. Most of us came out of it still smiling (although maybe it was smiling at the prospect of the well-earned seconds of Easter Eggs?) and enjoyed it even if we weren’t bothering the podium people at all.

In no particular order:

2nd place for Helen Cromie in both the WOpen Sprint and W21S (living closer to the Scandi action must be paying off?), Sam Griffin M10B, Jack Gomersall M18L,Richard Oxlade M50S, Calum/Sasha/Jack Men’s Short Relay (10 minutes ahead of the ‘old men’ Doug/Nick/Dad!)

1st place for Sasha M16 Sprint and Tim Gomersall M20L

Hats off to the three brave orienteers who had a tilt at the Elite classes – Calum McLeod M18E 17th (and one MAROC scalp), Katrina McLeod W18E 15th (and two MAROC scalps!) and not quite last but enjoyed every energy-sapping minute of it Gordon Urquhart M21E 54th!

3rd place for Anne Hickling on W55S and she found time to help with the Trail O (and is still seeking helpers for WTOC2012 please BTW)

Well done too to the Junior Ws who did well considering their lack of experience of big events like the JK but kept it together on both days – Maya Reynard W10B 8th, Josie Gomersall W12B 5th and Chloe Raynard W14B 4th.

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.
