And bad mistakes, I’ve made a few
FermO are the Champions!
What a fantastic weekend at the Irish Orienteering Championships coordinated by Fermanagh Orienteers with Raymond and Teresa Finlay at the helm. Four excellent events of quality orienteering were enjoyed by over 300 competitors, in varying testing terrain at Florencecourt, Castle Archdale, The Burren and Parkanaur Forest. Although the weather forecast was suggesting cold, even the temperatures were perfect for running with the sun shining though most of the time. Thanks are also due to LVO for staging the relays and to visiting controllers.
