Wednesday Evening Score , Jun 12 2013
Date of event: Wed 12th Jun 13
Type of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Witton Park, Blackburn
Tough one this! Light rain, poor light and dense forest made finding the mini controls quite difficult. Also around 150m of climb from the lowest control to the highest control ensured that no one managed to visit them all.
With hindsight the courses would have benefited by extending the time limit to 60 minutes. Too late for that, so the results stand.
Our thanks are due to the Clog & Billycock pub (good food & good service!) for allowing us to use their facilities and car park for the event. We were so well behaved they have invited us back for a future event.
League standings after 2 events are available under downloadable files below.
Join us next Wednesday evening for round 3 at Towneley Colliery & Healey Woods (new extension - not previously used.)

About the area/map
Witton Park, to the west of Blackburn centre, is a large well maintained area dedicated to recreation and sports.
There are playing fields, an athletics track, cafe and playgrounds in the level areas by the river. On the flanking hills there is a complex mix of woodland and open giving good technical orienteering. From the top of Billinge Hill there are a series of downhill MTB tracks.
Please note: when entering our events your name may appear in the results section of this website or in newspaper reports.
