Run wild in the woods

Tuesday=O, 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!

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.

Last month of night-o!

We'll be based from Carrbridge Village Hall for all the Tuesdays in March.
This will be the last block of training in the style that we've been testing out over the winter. 4 weeks from the same indoor base, each month with a different orienteering focus. The feedback has been good. Indoor base, orienteering training, followed by soup and a chat :) If you haven't been along yet, then this is your last chance!!

Scottish NIght Championships

BASOC showed our strength in night orienteering at the Northern NIght Cup series that concluded at Lochandinty last Wednesday evening. We had the 1st, 2nd & 4th places on the long course, 1st & 2nd on the Medium and 1st on the short.

We now have the opportunity to shine again, but this time on a larger stage, the Scottish Night Championships at Darnaway on the 18th February. Moravian are hosting the event this year along with the Scottish Sprint Championships on the Saturday. So whilst we don't practice running around the streets at high speed we are good in the forest, in the dark.
