CompassSport Trophy 2016

A good turnout of members travelled to South Yorkshire at the weekend to compete in the final of this years CompassSport Trophy, having qualified at Stirling way back in March.

The venue, Tankersley Woods, was used for coal and iron mining before being bombed during World War 2 and is now a wooded area of many paths, many pits and many brambles !

The day started very wet and the club tent putter-uppers got a soaking but the weather eventually cleared to sunny with blue skies. Unfortunately the teams results weren’t quite so sunny and most of us failed to cope with the terrain as well as we would have liked, so the team finished 5th from 12 on the day.  Highlights for the team were 2nd place for Kirstin Maxwell and 3rd place for Pauline McAdam.  8 year old Ellie Darlow was the only winner on the day, taking top spot on the Yellow course.
