14th July 2019: Yvette Baker Final 2019

Congratulations to Essex Stragglers, whose junior team have won the Yvette Baker Shield for 2019. They competed against teams from Mole Valley, Pendle Forest, Harlequins and Lincoln Orienteering Group at the national final, which was organised by EAOA and held at Sandringham Country Park on 7th July.

This is the first time an East Anglian club has won the YB shield, which has been introduced into the Yvette Baker competition for smaller clubs, in addition to the original Yvette Baker Trophy. As well as the shield teams, there were ten clubs at Sandringham competing for the trophy, including a team from WAOC. The trophy was won by juniors from South Yorkshire orienteers, with Southdowns Orienteers second and Happy Herts in third place.

The event was planned by Paul Beckett of HAVOC, and the organiser was Peter Woods of WAOC. The on-the-day team included helpers from NOR, WAOC and HAVOC with download operated by SUFFOC. Sarah Mansel of SUFFOC, as YBTS coordinator, liaised with the various clubs as they prepared their teams for entry in the final. We are grateful to the controller, Andrew Evans of DFOK, for his assistance in making the event a success, especially given the long distance to Sandringham from his home territory.

Full results and links to photos can be found on the WAOC website.
