Thank You

The English Orienteering Council would like to thank everyone who bought cakes from their stall at the CompassSport Cup Final (and of course all those who baked them). The sale raised a total of £327. In addition, the West Midlands Orienteering Association has donated £500 to the EOC from the profits from this year’s JK which was also held on Cannock Chase.

People may not be aware that the support which we once had from British Orienteering came to an end several years ago, and we receive nothing from Sport England.
Hence these contributions to the EOC funding are very much appreciated. and will go towards the cost of sending the English teams to Interland and the Junior, Senior and Veteran Home Internationals.

The French Ligue Nord-Pas de Calais de course d’orientation (LNPCCO) have invited us to race in the Interland 2014 match to be held in the Pas-de-Calais region near Bruay La Buissière (about 50 miles SE of Calais) on 30 March. England competes annually in this six-cornered match, its only one overseas, against two Belgian teams (Flemish and French speaking), the Netherlands, the Nordrhein-Westfalische (NW Germany) team and the French. The competition will be organized by the VALMO (Villeneuve d’Ascq Lille Métropole Orientation) club, with the support of Artois RaNd’Orientation (ARO) club.
