Excellence-winners-2It was a special moment this year when the 2020 John Brammall Perpetual Trophy for Individual Excellence was presented to John’s grand-daughter Liana Stubbs, by her grandmother Valerie Brammall. 

The trophy is awarded each year to the orienteer with the most Excellence points for the year. Excellence points are awarded at each OST event, based on kilometre rates and an adjustment for age and gender. The trophy is awarded in memory of EVOC member John Brammall in recognition of his commitment to orienteering at the national, state and local level.

The next four place-getters in the 2020 Excellence Series were Jon McComb, Jeff Dunn, Cathy McComb and Christine Brown.
