Battalion Orienteering Event 2010

Eight teams from the Coleraine & District Battalion of the Boys’ Brigade took part in the first of their outdoor events for the session. This was the Orienteering Competition with Downhill Forest being the venue. Thankfully the weather was dry and mild unlike the cold and snowy conditions of late. The 14 marker course had a mixture of difficult and more obvious locations which proved a challenge to the wide variety of age groups.

The eventual winners were the reigning champions 1st Garvagh BB Company who completed the course in 47 minutes, finishing 4 minutes ahead of their nearest rivals 1st Balteagh BB Company.
