A WEE Report on our June winners

Yesterday evening we drew a close to our WEE Series 🙁 Before we congratulate our series winners, we must thank the volunteers who have provided some great evenings out for us. 👏Firstly, Alan Brett who coordinated all four events in June. Yes four, because even though we had to cancel Antrim Castle Gardens, we couldn’t completely cancel it for the mass of local Primary School kids who had signed up. So, planner Chloe Reed and her dad Billy re-planned the short course, and along with the help of a few others (Michael, Steph and Ric), Alan managed to keep the Read More …

Trouble Sleeping?

There are lots of updated tables available to mull over following a very intense week of O-activity. They can all be accessed from the home page of the web site through “Resources>OneDrive Public”. There’s the NISeries tables after Slievemartin (congratulations to Cahal Power with the first class win of the year), the revised Colour Standards table (with 2 2023 events dropping off the 12-month window there a few changes which don’t result from performance at Slievemartin), the hCOW2024 tables after Slievemartin (very few folk beat their handicap!) the hCALF2024 tables after Barnett’s (even fewer there – congratulations Sharon Dickenson!) and Read More …

Not ony one, but two rounds of the LVO TrailO Champs this weekend! The first is alongside NICS4, in Rostrevor Forest and the second in Tollymore. The venues are: LVOTOC24-2 Rostrevor car park (Yes, actually IN the car park) and will be available from 10:30 LVOTOC24-3 Tollymore Forest Park, in the woodland alongside the weekend’s camp site. Timing will depend on timetable at Rostrevor but will be available late afternoon/early evening. Entry is free. Bring your compass. This is a standing-still activity so civvies will do the job. Apologies for the non-appearance of a Planner’s Commentary for Slemish College but Read More …

hCALF Calculations Unchanged.

Although the postponement of WEE6 (Antrim Castle Gardens) last week has reduced the number of hCALF-counting events from 7 to 6 (WEE1 was used to set intial handicaps – no points scored) the final results of both the hCOW (consistency) and Regatta (improvement) tables will be based on the best 4 scores. That means that, to get an asterisk in the hCOW table you have to have 3 WEE results behind you; in the Regatta table a non-result gets you a score one worse than the last finisher so you can still, with difficulty, climb up the table.
