7 January 2017: BKO team tackle the 'Peach Quest' on Radio Berkshire

A BKO team today took up the challenge of the 'Peach Quest' on BBC Radio Berkshire from 8.00-11.00. The team of Fiona Clough, Denise Harper and Brian Burt faced a series of cryptic clues. These were used to direct the BBC reporter to the location of the next clue with 4 in total to be solved.  It was a great effort by our team but they just failed to reach the end of the Quest in time. However, it was good publicity for the club and orienteering in general. Well done 'Berkshire Orients'!

31 December 2016: BBC Radio Berkshire finds us at Whiteknights

On Saturday mornings, BBC Radio Berkshire arranges for one of their reporters, Anoushka, to drive around Berkshire following clues to different locations.  And this morning they decided that our New Year's Eve event at Whiteknights was to be one of the featured points.  Unfortunately, after considering that the clue pointed to a pub in Pangbourne, they were a bit later than expected in arriving.  However, when Anoushka did arrive, Fiona Clough was on hand to give a brief explanation of the event and the club before reading out the next clue.
