RUGBY URBAN RESULTS
Following on from the very successful national UK League Rugby Urban event earlier in the year, the club scheduled another urban event in Rugby’s Lower Hillmorton area, using a new map by Mike Hampton. Organisers Sheila and Peter Carey, based the event at Whinfield Park, and designed three courses to suit all abilities. They were pleased with the number of orienteers who competed, especially the newcomers from Rugby.

William Newton M10 was 2nd in 13.53mins and Mia Rayner W14 3rd in 19.44mins. Annabel Rayner W18 was 1st on the Medium 4.3km course finding 11 controls in 58.36mins, \Margaret Willdig W60 was 2nd in 62.56mins and new club member Matt Bambrook M14 (shadowed by his dad) was 3rd Octavian Droober taking 79.35mins.
