5 November 2017 Southern Championships 2017: Two BKO Champions

The club has two Southern Champions as a result of last weekend’s November Classic in the New Forest!  Congratulations to Martin Wilson (as M65 Champion) and to Ian Cooper (as M70 Champion). Also doing well were Adam Methven (2nd in M12A) and Pavel Prochazka who was the third placed eligible entry for the Championship in M21E.  This was the 50th 'November Classic' which is usually held on the first weekend of November in the New Forest.  The ancient forest provides a great technical challenge and it is usually looking at its best in the autumn colours in November.  This year the organinsing club, Southampton Orienteers, staged the 'Classic' in Highland Water, considered one of the best areas for orienteering in the New Forest.  Our champions are to be congratulated on completing their courses in the fastest times and are true 'Southern Champions'.
