11th May 2014: East Anglian Schools Championships

Winners. Winners.

The East Anglian Schools Championships took place at Hadleigh Country Park on Sunday 11th May. Around 75 competitors from schools across the region took part in the event in an area partly used for the Olympic Mountain Biking in 2012.

St Andrew's were victorious in the primary school categories with Barnaby Gough winning Gold, Zac Poter Silver and Liam Polley Bronze in the Primary Boys category and Zoe Hartnup winning Gold, Evie Amos Silver and Amy Skeet 4th in Primary Girls.

Hedingham School year 9/10 Boys were Gold medal winners with an individual Silver medal for Josh Partridge, Bronze for John-Henry Love and Joseph Powers 6th.

It was a clean sweep for Hedingham School in both the year 7/8 and 9/10 Girls categories with Chloe Cracknell winning Gold, Victoria Love Silver and Cerys Wrigley Moss Bronze in year 7/8. Daisy Partridge was Gold medalist running up in the year 9/10 girls category with Laura Smith taking Silver and Harriet Vinter Bronze.

Callum Turner from Ramsey Academy was the individual Gold medalist in the year 9/10 boys category.

The overall result was incredibly close this year with the E A Schools Championship trophy being shared by Hedingham School and St Andrew's Primary School with Barnardiston Prep in third, Kings College School 4th and Brentwood School 5th.

1st May 2014: TrailO at the JK2014 in Wales, a big thank you

The TrailO competitions on Good Friday and Easter Sunday could not have been the success that they were without the many EAOA members and friends who gave up time to work on the essential elements of an event on those days, especially Tony and Janet Biggs who came both days and did an excellent job in producing the results.

I suspect that everyone will remember the weather on Sunday for many years, with the lightening strike and coming through the eerie canyon in the fog. I am most grateful to all who where there from EAOA and the Royal Signals team who put out all the course, luckily the preparation worked and there were no location problems, just that fog!

You all made it a success and have the thanks of all the competitors who were able to complete their course, I regret that the helpers did not as they returned to duty. Most of the EOD entry thought better about the long walk to find us, due to the nesting peregrine falcons, and the weather so some had less to do than envisaged. You may be surprised to learn that Dick and I thought the day warm compared with our previous visits.
