The 3rd running of The Sunset and Beyond Relay

This year's event on Saturday 28th March 2020 adds a new class. There will be the opportunity to have an all male handicap team, following representations from some clubs that they cannot find females to complete their team. So this year a second trophy will be awarded. The main event is still the mixed handicap relay, but the second class will add to the event.
The event will be held from the Dancing Goose Pub in Netley with a mass start at 5pm. There will be a Google Forms registration facility available on the website. The handicap system will also be posted. 

Summer Events

Given recent weather, summer may feel a long way off but, as per Terry's post, the fixtures calendar has now been populated through to the November Classic so make a note of the dates! To ensure that you continue to get a regular fix of orienteering through the summer months, there will be an event on the third Sunday of every month from April through to September. Each event will cater for experienced club members and, for beginners, the aim is to offer a suitable progression that will set them up for running the Classic in the autumn.

With a limited set of courses and a short start block, the aim is to make the events as sociable as possible whilst also minimizing volunteer effort. As Terry says, we still need a planner and organiser for each. The first three events will be at Southampton Common then Itchen Valley and Royal Victoria Country Parks. If you're interested in helping or would just like to know more about what's involved then please do get in touch with either Terry or myself.
