SO Worth Lodge Event
In the 1st Division HH again failed to get a good turnout and they slipped more points below SO giving them a convincing victory overall. GO again won in the 2nd Division bringing then up into joint second place. SN retained their clear lead to win in the CROC trophy.
This brought to an end the 2017-18 South East League season.
Congratulations to Southdowns who once again finished in top spot. Commiserations to LOK and CHIG who slipped to Division 2, being replaced by SN and GO (the latter as a result of the newly introduced tiebreak rule).

The main purposes of the Association are to provide facilities for and to promote participation in the amateur sport of Orienteering in the South East area of England.
The main activities undertaken by the region include:-
The South East Junior Squad is aimed at juniors in the 14-18 age groups who want to improve their orienteering, train regularly with other juniors, have fun and make new orienteering friends. We meet once a month and sometimes have weekends away for training or competitions, such as the annual Junior Inter-Regional Championships.
The South East League is an annual competition between its member clubs, which runs over each autumn/winter/spring season. The league is based on events approved by SEOA.
The Individual League is a competition between individual members, using the same events, but on a calendar year basis.
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body.
The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.
In competitive orienteering the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route.

These are a great way to get outside and go orienteering at a time and place that suits you. Courses offer a huge range of variety, from urban courses in city centres to rural routes through beautiful scenery. They are on your doorstep or further afield helping you to discover new places.
