Waterford Orienteers on the move

In recent years, there have been few Wato members taking part in the major events.
The Cox family joined over 100 other Irish orienteers for the annual JK event at Easter. This took part in very runnable terrain in Surrey, south of London. As well as the traditional 2 days individual event, there was a fast sprintO in the University of Surrey in Guildford and a muddy relay event south of Tunbridge Wells. Taking part in such a large event is a whole new year why not head to the North east of England for the JK?
This coming weekend, the Leinster Championships take place on Fair Mountain in County Wicklow. Laura and Andrew Cox will be joined by three generations of Pims at a range of different classes. Then it is back to Tickancor, near Clonmel for the Munster League event which we hope will attract all our members. This will use Sport Ident electronic system. The club have purchased 40 sport ident cards (dibbers) which will be on sale to members along with this years membership which have not been collected yet. The club have also purchased sport ident stations which will mean that all our events in future should use the electronic get your dibbers now!
Then it is on to Bere Island for the Irish Championships over the May Bank Holiday...Neil Dobbs will fly in from Poland to take part in the M21 elite whilst once again the Cox and Pim families will fly the flag for Waterford at other levels. Will we have enough to enter a relay team this year?
