Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Schools Orienteering Championships
Hanley Central Forest Park, 24th March 2022
Comments from Brenda and Henry Morgan, Event Organisers:
It was a hot sunny day, but fewer schools than usual took part due to Covid. I cannot praise highly enough the band of unpaid helpers, some of whom patrolled the area so the pupils were safe. Sadly, some pupils still missed controls or dibbed the wrong one despite being given instructions at the start. We look forward to seeing you next year on the 23rd March 2023. POTOC do have events monthly. The next is at Biddulph Country Park on Saturday 9th April, see POTOC website for details.
