The online magazine of South London Orienteers and
Issue 116 - October 1997
Congratulations to Bambi and Mark Walmsley on the
birth of their baby daughter, I had been pestering Mark for the
Captain's Report for some time when I received an email on Wednesday
1st October 'at 9.42 am Tuesday (30th
September 1997), Samantha Emily made her appearance, weighing
in at 8lb 7oz. Mother and Baby are both in excellent health and
should be home at the weekend. The fun will start then!'
As far as I can make out the M/W0 tally is currently boys:1,
girls:2. My sources also tell me that we should have at least
one complete M0 or W0 relay team by the end of the year!
Despite Robbo's article 'a good long whinge', Elisabeth
and I find ourselves in grave danger of orienteering in six events
in the space of seven weeks. Having said that, I have just worked
out that this would involve about 1500 miles of travelling! The
reason for this sudden change is that Nicholas is proving to be
very portable at the moment; so we're making the most of the opportunity.
Let's hope that it stays this way, and that our newest arrivals
can match the enthusiasm and results of our current crop of juniors.
|Club Officers||with vacancies for ladies captain and training officer.|
