CLS Sprint 17 February
(Interløpers winter warm weather training)

The Danes dominated in Scotland at WOC2015.  But Interløpers and friends made a foray into the sports training centre of the world champion's country - Club la Santa, Lanzarote - for some epic sprint racing.

The touch-free honesty punching system proved a big success.

And the winner of INT Hallowe'en party head to head Maze O was.....

Paul Caban

in an astounding time of 1:53, especially after having punched 7 controls in the wrong order (but then re-doing them in the correct order). Joseph Bartlett also had a commendable performance with the fastest overall time of 1:51 but sadly missed one straight line control...  British Squad team-mates Alex Carcas and Matt Fellbaum went head to head with Alex getting the next fastest time of 1:58, and well, we won't publish Matt's time but you can see the video on our facebook page...

"The best little orienteering club in Britain" - Graeme Ackland

There were some fantastic efforts in the Trophy Final at Tankersley, near Barnsley, on Sunday.  Course wins for Alex Carcas, Ann Haley, and Pippa Carcas, Brexit-bashing debuts from Klara, Lucile, and Aymeric, and a series of other great runs.  With Colin Inverarity having to pull out with a calf injury, we had no finishers in the over-60 classes.  It left little room for error, especially for the orange runners, and Fiona's top position among the W12s was especially crucial.

Few will remember the last time that INT won the Trophy, in 1996, when all of this year's counters were 21s or younger.  Googlecache records that INT beat Essex in the Finals.   Since then, we've racked up an insane number of second places over the years, with the bitter defeat on countback last year.  The 1996 Results may be found at this location.

Profuse thanks are due to Rob Lee, who spent many hours cajoling the membership to participate in the Final, and overseeing the team selection.

Full results may be found at this link.  For those who haven't seen it, the Trophy looks like this.  Here's a photo of some of the winning team (thanks to Rob Bloor).

Team GB performed with distinction in the World Champs recently finished in Sweden.  The Mixed Sprint Relay Team came 4th, and the Men's Forest Relay Team, including Hector Haines on the second leg, achieved the same result.  In the Individual events, Hector was 19th in the Long race, in which Alan Cherry finished 37th.

As a result of the Relay achievements, GB qualified as one of the 13 best nations for the World Games in Poland in 2017.

SprINTelope 4 found us at Loretto School, Musselburgh, with the short course entirely within the Campus, and the longer course heading out into the surrounding streets towards the coast.  And who knew that such a gem of an area lay unmapped so close to the city? Answer: Scott Fraser, newly employed and resident there.  As to be expected from one of our sprint specialists, we had tricky courses - no-one found the best route to number one! - and even a control in the planner's garden.  The evening was rounded off with burgers and salad.  With thanks to Robin&Sheila for SI help, and Paula (wo)manning the barbeque.

CompassSport Cup Qualifier.  Dumyat.

Our mission: finish in the top three.

Everyone else's mission: finish in the top four.

How hard could it be?  Well, for most of the day we made hard work of it, but eventually we scrambled passed ECKO to bag a place in the final in Sheffield on 16 October.

INT course winners were Scott Fraser, Freddie Carcas and Sam Bartlett

CLYDE, RR and ECKO will be at the final, and some English and Welsh clubs too, so we'll have to work a bit harder to support our superstars Scott, Freddie and Sam, and bury the misery of last year's tie-break defeat.

Final Interløper selections at WOC 2015 (1-7 August)

The final GBR selection for WOC had a strong Interløpery theme to it, with Hector joining Scott and Murray on the team.  They were pitting their wits against the best/worst efforts of other Interløpers: Middle/Relay Planner (Graeme), Long Controller (Colin), moderated by Technical Coordinator (Graham).

In the Sprint at Forres on Sunday 2nd, Scott finished 13th, and Murray 18th, out of 45 competitors, 27 and 36 secs respectively behind the winner, Jonas Leandersson of Sweden.  Full results are here, and more info can be found on the WOC website.

In the Middle at Darnaway Forest on Tuesday 4th, Hector finished 10th= (out of 79), 1m45s behind the winner, Daniel Hubmann of Switzerland.  Alison was 59th in the Women's race.  Full results are at this link.

On first lap of the Relay at Darnaway on Wednesday 5th, Scott brought GB in 8th;  Graham Gristwood had a storming run to bring the team up to 2nd, but on anchor leg Ralph Street was overtaken by the Norwegian and French teams, finishing 4th, 2m49s behind Switzerland, who led from Start to Finish.  USA Women finished 20th, with Alison 23rd on the second lap.  The GB girls were 9th.  Full results are here.

In the Long race at Glen Affric on Friday 7th, Hector placed 17th out of 74 in 109m06s, 9m20s behind the winner, France's Thierry Gueorgiou.  Graham Gristwood was 18th, and Ali McLeod 26th.  Full results are at this link.

Hope everyone enjoyed the somewhat devious courses I planned today.  On the long course a little bit of local knowledge might have helped if you knew you could definitely get out the East side of Astlie Ainsley (there is a small pedestrian entrance).  If you didn't spot this you probably had quite a long run on the way back.

With a bit more time I would have tightened up on the map drawing/control descriptions, some of which was a little 'iffy' but I was out of action with the dreaded lurgy earlier this week.

My apologies for those of you that had hand drawn modified short maps for the long course (thanks Colin for drawing!).

The team of Alex Carcas, Murray Strain and Hector Haines brought INT home to victory for a record-breaking fifth time in the JK Relay Championship.

In a race featuring the top UK clubs and several National teams from Europe, 17 year-old Alex brought the team back 11th, less than 2 mins down on the Swiss National Team, and together with our main rivals ShUOC and Forth Valley.  On the short leg, Murray passed several weaker teams, and crucially took 30 secs  on ShUOC and 90 on FVO.  A nervous wait in assembly, the Swiss and Czech national teams come through, then Hector a few seconds ahead of Jonny Crickmore of ShUOC, with FVO's Graham Gristwood hot on their tails.  More nervousness in the arena.  Then Hector appears on the run in, hanging on for a 6 sec win.

The Scottish heat of the UK national club competition was held at Balnagowan on Deeside (15 March).  Once upon a time, some 20 years ago, Interløpers won the "small clubs" trophy, and with the final in the Lake District we have the possibility of another decent showing in October.  First, though, the qualifier.  The very restrictive scoring system means you have to have people across a range of ages, and if like INT you don't field any over-60s you have to count every course.   The club stars did the business with wins for Murray Strain and Freddie Carcas, and second spots for Cap'n Rob Lee, Alex Carcas and Jane Ackland.  But the key to the cup is runners across age groups, and so the heroes of the day were Fiona Eades and Matthew Ross, stepping up to the orange course to complete the team.

On home territory, and with four times as many people, MAROC proved invincible, but we qualified as runners-up, and if we can take a strong team to the final we can challenge them.  There are some teams from Englandshire too, but that's never been a problem in the past!

Save the date :   Sunday 18 October 2015 - Helsington Barrows, Kendal.

Interløpers Club Championships took place at the ELO SoSOL at Saltoun (30 November). The forest near Pencaitland, which had been remapped for the event, provided an ideal venue.

There was a great turn-out from Interløpers, and the Championships were hotly contested. Matthew Ross and Pippa Carcas put in a strong showing, as did the ‘old guard’ with Ken and Paul separated by pico-seconds.

In the end, after applying a complex algorithm (which took individuals' race times, multiplied them by the longitude of the waning gibbous moon faintly visibly in the sky on the day, divided by the waist measurement of the competitor (in inches)), our Captain won!

Congratulations, Rob Lee. Another sweet victory.

The trophy was duly presented at Paul’s 50th Birthday party (great event!). Even better, Rob gets to organise the 2015 event. Well done to Rob and all the other competitors.

Remember, it is the taking part that counts!

The tops are available as long or short sleeved; in sizes 130, 140, 150 and XS to XXXL, plus female cut XS to XXL.
