Break Time

Well done to Nick Simonin on a fantastic 27th place in the Sprint and on qualifying for the Long Distance final at the World Championships.

You can read about WOC 2012 on the Senior Squad blog here.

TIO is taking a short break. After the break we expect to have reports on WOC, JWOC, Sorlandsgaloppen in Norway, the Welsh 6-Day and maybe the World Masters in Germany and World Student Champs in Spain, plus other summer O-activities.

In the meantime. look out for those summer orienteering events at home like the 3ROC series of four Tuesdays in the Phoenix Park in August, celebrating the Park’s 350th Anniversary, on August 7th (Papal Cross), 14th (Furry Glen), 21st (Magazine Fort) and 28th (Furze Road), starts 6.30-7.30.
The first event is a charity fundraiser for DeafHear ( who provide services for the hard of hearing.

Get ready for the Fingal scatter event series on Sundays in Dublin in September and look out for three Leinster Mountain Bike orienteering events on Saturdays in September (the 1st, 15th and 22nd). More details later.

Finally, there will be a Junior training weekend in Dublin, including the infamous Phoenix Park time trials, on September 8/9 and the Senior Home International will be in Scotland on September 22/23, unfortunately clashing with the London City race and the UK Southern Championships in nearby Epping Forest. The Leinster Championships are a week later on the 30th in Co. Wicklow.

Enjoy the “Summer”!
