The handicap system employed to determine the points gives us all a fighting chance if we are on top of our game.
This year it seems the male athletes were the more focused.
Congratulations to George who seems to be peaking at the right time.
The points scored by all can be found using the League tab, but the top 10 scorers were:
George Van Dam 1167
David Jolly 1132
Neil Harvatt 1102
Mike Byron 1094
Peter Harris 1089
Wayne Byrne 1086
Brian Hostad 1071
Paul Van Dam 1060
Pam Brown 1055
Amanda Ward 1038
Just outside the top ten was Pete Shew who picked up the wrong map and had to return to the Start after a couple of controls. This was costly but it is believed even with a clear run he would still have been behind George and would not have retained the title.

On behalf of the HALO Committee I would like to thank all runners from both HALO and LOG for once again producing an exciting sporting team competition.
The results can be found here.
This year it was very much a team effort with scorers from across all age and gender classes and those lower down the order also contributed by reducing the LOG total.
So it is a big thank you to all those who represented the Club and well done.
Perhaps next year we can retain the title but it will no doubt be a big ask - the training starts next week with the start of the LUL, another team trophy for us to try to get our hands on.
Many thanks to Mike Byron for providing the ice lollies and ice creams which well received on such a warm evening.Peter Harris 17 Jun 2021 13:41 - updated by Peter Harris 17 Jun 2021 18:06
HALO's First Virtual Permanent Orienteering Course (MapRun) Risk Assessment
We are pleased to open our VPOC at Victoria Dock Village in Hull
We have set this course up primarily for personal training, and not for competition, and we have decided to keep it open for a substantial length of time so participants can go back and try to improve their time/fitness by either choosing a better route, by improving their map reading skills or by running faster or further. The course is open to anyone who wants to have a go (see advice below) as well as HALO Club Members.
This form of orienteering has no orange kites or control plaques but makes use of the GPS facility on modern smartphones. Participants download the MapRun6 app, available for both android and iPhone, download the map they need to their phone and print themselves a paper copy of the map. For more detailed instructions as to how to get going - and the paper map- click on the tabs below. If you have a suitable Garmin watch then advice as to how to set it up is on the tab as well and you will then have no need to take your phone out with you.
On the maps (phone and paper) we have indicated a Start/Finish but we have set the course up so you can choose to Start and Finish at any of the control sites that you want. (Start and Finish must be at the same control though). When you start the MapRun app will automatically designate your chosen starting control as the Start/Finish. It will also, change the Start/Finish showing on the phone map to be just another control that needs to be visited, but obviously we cannot change that on the paper map too! You need to visit all the controls to record a successful run on the MapRun server.
Naturally we want you to stay safe, cause no damage or upset the locals.
With that in mind there are some conditions that we need you to be aware of and agree to before you go out:
All current Covid-19 laws and Government advice should be followed
The course is not suitable for unaccompanied under 16s whilst they are are participating
These events take place on streets, footpaths and open places. Pay attention to the usual urban risks: traffic, slippery surfaces, blind corners, kerbs, etc and stay well clear of other people in the area
Wear clothing and footwear suitable for the activity
Do not enter any Out of Bounds areas or enter private land. Out of Bounds areas are marked on the map with purple lines/hatching or purple crosses.
Anyone undertaking a VPOC (MapRun) is doing so in their own time and at their own risk. British Orienteering and Humberside and Lincolnshire Orienteers (HALO) take no responsibility for any damage or injury whilst participating.
