NWO Silk Wood event at Westonbirt, Sunday 28th Feb

A reminder that there is a NWO local and ASO event on Sunday 28th Feb at Westonbirt Arboretum.

Pete Maliphant reports that the South West Junior Squad shop now has several types of control description holder in stock as well as ankle tape.
The bad news is that the authorities at Westonbirt have declined to give the SWJS permission to bring anything at all to the event this weekend. So no cakes on Sunday!
If you need anything for Sunday please e-mail or call the Maliphant family - the address can be found at www.swjs.co.uk/obuy.html.

Klub Archivist

The Chairman says 'I am delighted to inform the Membership that we have a new post within the Klub - of the Bristol Orienteering Klub Archivist. Alan Kempton has very kindly offered his services to fill this role.

Now for all of you who have those special pieces of memorabilia do let us know and we can develop an anthology of our 38 years. BOK News, maps, awards, key members - all can be recorded. Thank you Alan - and I think the first port of call might be Anne Donnell's cupboard!'

Stop Press - Lyncombe Event, Sunday 7 February 2010

Coming across from the A370 (Bristol-Weston super Mare) via Congesbury, the B3133 is CLOSED for maintenance at the Langford end. You can still use the Congesbury end of the B3133 and then bear right, using the minor road shortcut via Brinsea to Churchill Green. Click on link to map and zoom out to level 5.
Don't forget the event is NOT based at the Lyncombe Ski & Sports Centre - the parking is in the quarry at the west end of the map.

Klub Archivist

Anyone ? At Committee we have found the subject of the possibility of creating the role of Klub Archivist arising in two successive meetingsn and this has prompted me to post this Blog. We feel there would be a great service to the Klub by drawing together the history of its activities, winners, awards, maps, BOK News, etc. Ideally, this information would be converted into a digital record - but in the first instant, we would like to identify and collate the realm of information that is largely held in many an obscure garage! Might there be anyone [or more] out there who would be willing to set up this invaluable role. Please do send me an E mail or give me a ring if tempted.
