Coaching for Juniors

We are running a series of coaching sessions aimed at Juniors. John Mather is leading on each of the sessions which are an opportunity for Juniors new to the sport to get to grips with the basics and for more experienced Juniors to undertake some practice in a non-competitive setting. Parents are warmly welcomed to attend – and join in.

The sessions all take place at Hartsholme Park, Lincoln, starting 1.45pm and lasting for around an hour, hopefully finishing in the Café afterwards! Juniors don’t need to attend all the sessions, just come along to as many as you want to.

The dates are:

27th April
11th May
25th May
8th June
15th June
29th June
13th July
Dates in September and October to be announced

It is essential that you email beforehand to let John know you are coming – to send out more details and for map printing – please email at j.mather[AT]ntlworld.com

Spring Series 6 – Ostler’s Plantation

Ostler’s Plantation offers some of the most runnnable forest of all of LOG’s mapped areas and this week’s Planner Kev Rice made good use of it across all three courses, opting for a traditional line course for the Technical. Some of the areas mapped as mid or dark green are now beginning to open out giving wider route-choice options than was perhaps the case a few years ago.

On the Short Course Patricia Simmonds made it her own, whilst over on the Long Course PJD, Ian Crowe and Doug Stewart made it the 1-2-3. Liam was absent from the Technical this week – car trouble – and Justin Williams took full advantage storming round in under 24 minutes; Paul M and Andrew R took second and third.

This was the sixth and final event of the series and the series winners were:

Liam Harrington – Technical – 200 points (maximum score)
Tanya Taylor – Long – 199 points
Alison & Alison and Isabel May – Short – tied on 98 points

Mention also to newcomers Ian Crowe and Doug Stewart taking second and third on the Long Course.

Prizegiving to take place at the East Midlands Sprint Championships on 23rd June at Witham-St-Hughs
