The NWOA are re-launching their Colour Badge Scheme, which recognises the progression of orienteers through colour coded events from WHITE to LIGHT GREEN. This is a scheme of awarding Colour Badges at Orienteering Events for newcomers of all ages. To qualify for your Colour Badge you must achieve colour standard in the same colour course at three different events.
Steve Birkinshaw - Copeland Chase winner 2017

Many thanks to Mike Pearson and his team for planning and organising today's Copeland Chase, and to all the competitors who supported this event.  This year a Score format was used, with four courses offering a challenge from 1 to 4 hours. Congratulations to Steve Birkinshaw (pictured with the Joe Long Trophy) who won the 4hr course, and Karen Parker who won 1st Lady. John Slater, who after 10 years or planning and organising this event finally got a run, won the 3hr course, with Sue Skinner first Lady.  The 2hr course was won by junior Daniel Spencer, with GB teammate Niamh Hunter first Lady, and the 1hr course winner was another WCOC junior, Wilf Teasdale, with Rosie Spencer winning first Lady.
