Pilling Half Century

Three Pilling generations - Amy, Helen, Carole,

PFO as a club is 52 years old.  Carole writes that she and daughter Helen have been members for most of them:

"It has just occured to me that Helen and I have been members of PFO for about 50 years!  We joined as a family in 1968 when we came to live around here.  Brian had read about the new sport of orienteering in a library book and thought it sounded 'a good thing' so we found PFO and got started. So you young'uns see if you can beat our record."

Brian and Carole were the names behind all of the early PFO Capricorn events in those far off days of sending your entry cheque with 2 SAEs for event final details and for the printed results.  Pilling was always the name.

You will regularly meet Carole on duty at PFO event Registration, 2nd generation Helen is a regular helper and competitor and 3rd generation Amy also competes.

We are all very grateful for your enduring contributions.
