|The SOS Club Championships will be held at the SUFFOC Daisy's Wood, Rendlesham event on Sunday 1st December. Details of the event can be found on SUFFOC website
|Last year, the Committee commissioned two magnificent trophies to mark the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Club. One is awarded to the Open Champion and the other to the Junior champion. All members of the club are eligible.|
|The Rules are as follows:
- The Open Champion will be awarded on the basis of points scored for the Stragglers League. i.e. The member scoring 100 points will be declared Club Champion 2019. All members entering TD4 courses (Light Green and above) will be eligible.
- The Junior Champion will be awarded using a similar system. Only M/W14 and under will be eligible. Older Juniors are of course eligible for the Open Championship. White, Yellow and Orange courses will also be included. The min/km for corrected course length will be calculated and the age class factor applied as for the Stragglers League but a course factor will also be applied. This is because the technical difficulty of the courses are different.
- Members with dual club membership must either enter as SOS or email the scorer, Andrew Cordle firstname.lastname@example.org stating their wish to be included in the Championship scoring.
|The trophies will be presented at the New year's Day Novelty on January 1st.|
