Last week saw 20 Corps Orienteers in South Wales for Croeso 2016, the 5-day orienteering competition held every 4 years.
This year had 4 races close to Bridgend (2 in the sand dunes of Kenfig and 2 in the woods of Margam) and one on the moorlands above Tredegar. We had a great week, which even 2 days of rain couldn’t dampen our spirits, with good orienteering challenges, pretty good underfoot conditions and good organisation from an army of volunteers. There were a lot of great performances, with an overall podium position for Maj Barrett who came 1st on M45L and LCpl Fisher on M21V ‘ well done to both. Other overall top ten were:
2nd ‘ M21V Pte Long, Sgt Beattie
4th ‘ Pte Lama M21V, WO2 Newham M35S,
5th ‘ Cpl Cox M21S
6th ‘ LCpl Kirantee M21V, WO2 Falls M35S,
7th ‘ Pte Webber M21V
8th ‘ Lt Col Hoff M50S
9th ‘ Pte Rai M21V, WO2 McComiskie M35L, Maj Andrews M45L
