Notable AIRE performances at JK2017!
A merry band of Airienteers headed south east for JK2017 at the Easter weekend. The sun shone on four days of varied terrain. Heritage Tractors and a pink Friesian cow figured as spectator controls!

Neil Conway finished 11th overall in M45L; James Avis 6th overall in M21V; Jack Wood 20th overall in M21E.
In the Women’s Competition there were strong performances from Evie Conway (W16A) who finished 5th in the Sprint and 4th overall in the Middle/Long; Laura King (W18E) who was 8th in the Sprint and overall 4th place in the Middle/Long; Lucy Haines (W18E) 4th in the Sprint and 7th overall in the Middle/Long.
