'Yes, I believe that it is the first course Bonington has planned'
The Limerick Competition was a favourite in the newsletter in the early days
Here are some choice examples from the 1970's - and a cartoon referring to one of the club's illustrious members
There is a young lady I know,
Who used to run terribly slow,
But when offered free Guinnesh,
To sup at the finish,
My goodnesh she didn't half go.
An orienteer named Kelly,
While crawling along on his belly,
Said "It makes me so sick,
These trees are so thick,
I wish I'd stayed home and watched telly".
Derek Hartley, inspired by Broughton Moor
An orienteer called Hartley,
Wears red and blue O suits - partly,
As he goes dashing past,
He may not finish last,
But at least he does it smartly.
