Border Liners 50th Anniversary Celebration
Border Liners Orienteering Club was formed in Autumn 1969. Our first event was in May 1970 in Greystoke Forest.
On Sunday 31 May, at 11.00am if possible, do some activity on a theme of 50 to celebrate Border Liners’ 50th Anniversary.
Border Liners and friends, past and present, and anyone who was at that 1970 event are all invited to take part.
If you would like to join in the fun but haven't received the club email newsletter, please get in touch for full details. Most importantly, all activities must be in accordance with UK/devolved government guidelines on the day. That still leaves you with plenty of choices, and scope for ingenuity!
Orienteering Report 18th May 2020
Next Sunday marks fifty years to the day since Border Liners held their first competitive orienteering event in Greystoke Forest near Penrith. On the anniversary, a number of the original competitors will be celebrating the occasion – but probably not in the way they originally envisaged!
Tie-breaker result, a new quiz, and crossword answers
“Five people got all the answers right in the Towns and Cities quiz. The tie-breaker was to come up with the best clue for a town or city in Wales (since I didn't have any in the original).
Choosing a winner was very hard but eventually I decided that my favourite was Richard Moss’s so he wins the bottle of wine, though how to get it to him remains unresolved. Most people, in addition to their official entry, sent me other clues that they had devised so I have collated them all into a new quiz which is now available - attached. There are no prizes and the answers will be published in a few weeks’ time. Richard’s winning tie-break entry is the first one in the list.” Karen Parker
