Every Tuesday we go out orienteering, usually with a navigational focus. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically!
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
We all enjoy and derive great benefit from the regular orienteering on Tuesday evenings, but it would be good to share the work out a bit - can you help?
We're looking for organisers for three local events - nice low-key things ideal for someone who's new to event organising, and with plenty of experts around to mentor and support you just as much as you want.
A few bits and pieces are happening - read on for more about them all!
For the last two Tuesday trainings at Loch Vaa SW the turnout has been excellent - BASOC members must like a challenge! We have also had a few 'visitors' come along to play with the contours! This training will really help you when the evenings are lighter, orienteering navigation will feel so easy!
Meanwhile all the very best to the BASOC folks who are travelling 'over the hill' to the British Night Champs and SOL 1 this weekend. Maybe get a wee report from someone for the website? And some photos?
Here is the first bit of news for February; the committee have a meeting next Monday (11th) so there will probably be another eNews after that.
It can be hard finding out what is happening for orienteering - here is something to help you with this.
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging adventure sport. It's easy for anyone to start and fun to do. You learn to navigate, develop confidence and discover new places. Orienteering is a sport that exercises both your mind and body.
Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
