Evie Conway wins W18 Elite
Easter weekend saw over 30 club members running at the annual JK Orienteering Festival. The event consisted of a sprint race at Aldershot Garrison, followed by middle and long distance individual races at Windmill Hill and Cold Ash respectively and the final race being a relay at Minley.
There were some great results for Aire members over the weekend, with star performance being Evie Conway who won W18E overall with two 2nd place finishes on the day in both the middle and long.
Peter Haines was second overall in M65 but first Brit (beaten by former World Champs medallist Sigurd Daehli of Norway) with 3rd and 2nd places on the days....

Long leg madness...
Well done to all Airienteers who represented the club on Sunday. Great effort particularly from the Juniors to travel all that way and help the club. We were blessed with amazing conditions, compared with the forecast 24hrs before. Many thanks to Border Liners for a well run enjoyable event. Great new area and hopefully we will get a chance to race there again in the future.
It was very close, unratified results are WCOC 2450 AIRE 2418 MDOC 1836 LOC 1435; unfortunately too many Airienteers lost the plot on the long leg (3 out 3 in our car) . I'm sure this will be fully dissected and analysed in the next Aire Affairs. We live and learn, next topic for AIRE training: How to survive and conquer 'long legs'?
Runs of the day go to: Tony Thonley (1st VSG) who used all his nous to beat the gorse bushes and younger whipets; Evie Conway (1st SG) who won by exactly 1 minute over WCOC and Alasdair McLeod (1st Br) who won by 1 second!
