Abernethy Primary win 2016 title
The series is now finished for 2016. After a late surge from Carrbridge Primary, Abernethy managed to hold off the competition and have won the 2016 title. There was a desperately close contest for 3rd place between Aviemore & Deshar.

This weekend 14/15 May 2016, is the Cairngorms Nature Festival and we have a treat for mtb orienteers at the Laggan Wolftrax Centre, at Strathmashie, PH201BU. Kingussie High School have planned an iorienteering mtb O experience and will be there to hand out maps and explain how it all works.
We have new superb "semi-permanent" orienteering courses. The Easy, Medium, and Medium+ courses now have an added optional, feature, QR codes, linked to iorienteering. In addition there is a new String course with prizes, "What is hiding in the forest?"
For this special weekend, all orienteering maps will be FREE.
A fun local community project for BASOC
Inverness College, Kingussie High School and the local Community Sports Hub all worked together to put on a fun little taster event round the grounds of Kingussie High School. This was part of a Sports Taster Day where pupils in S1-S4 got to try everything from roller skiing to indoor bowling via shinty, football, mountain biking and of course orienteering.
Well done to the 30 pupils who took part - find your results here.

Run wild in the woods
Tuesday=O, so we go out and do some orienteering. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically, and now it's in daylight!
So dig out that compass and give it a go.
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
