2016 series underway with successful event at Abernethy
New for 2016, BASOC is trialling a mini schools league. In future years we aim to put on a competition for schools all over the BASOC area, but we have decided to start small and build slowly. This year there will be four rounds, each one hosted at one of the four primary schools surrounding Grantown Grammar. Pupils from any other secondary or primary school are very welcome to attend.
Results are now online. Just go to the results page after each week for results, photos and post-event reports.
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.
Find out what the committee have been talking about.
Minutes of the meeting on Apr 11 2016
The next committee meeting will be in the Committee Room at Aviemore Primary School (Community Sports Hub by another name) on TBA at 7pm to 9pm.
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.
With a new map of a wonderfully varied area, we now have a superb "semi-permanent" orienteering course at Wolftrax, near Laggan.
The Easy, Medium, Medium+, and Hard courses now have an added feature, QR codes.
Final results after 6 rounds
The Northern Night Cup website has the full details about the series. This was a joint venture with Invoc & Moravian, with each club putting on two events.
Overall results after 6 rounds.
