Chichester Trophy for BOC 2019 Map

Many Congratulations to Tony Thornley who has won the Chichester Trophy which is awarded annually by British Orienteering for the best map by an amateur mapper. The judges recognised Tony's top quality map of Kilnsey and Arncliffe used for BOC 2019 scoring it highest overall on specification, cartography and presentation. The prestigious award should have been made at the BO AGM at the JK but obviously that had to be postponed. Tony's comments on receiving the award are on the BO website British Orienteering News Chichester Trophy 2019

A fuller story will be included in the forthcoming Aire Affairs.
