Twenty PFO members made the trip to Simpson Ground in the Lake District on12th March to compete in the NW heat of the Compass Sport Trophy. Unfortunately we didn’t win a place in the final - to be held in Devon later this year. That honour went to SROC.

British Night Champs 2017

British Night Championships 2017 Great Tower Wood
A number of PFO members braved the recent downpours to participate in this year’s British Night Championships at Tower Wood.
George Crawford Smith had let it slip that he has completed many of this year’s local night events in preparation for the event whereas , night novices Chris Goddard, Andy Wood and I were relying on our wits and enthusiasm to complete the courses.
George’s preparation was well judged; he completed the 3.4km M70L course in 4th place in a time of 67.10.

PFO Training Weekend February 2017

The forecast wasn’t very promising at all, and sure enough as I arrived at the Newby Bridge YMCA on Friday evening I was met by the familiar sound of rain. Settled into the accommodation no problem, and it turned out that we were the only group in this massive complex of huts and adventure equipment right by Windermere. Friday evening was spent getting settled in and eating dinner which as it turned out was the only one I needed to cook as all other meals were catered, which was a nice surprise.
