The days are starting to become longer, we are nearly at the end of the Tuesday = DarkO season. The orienteering ‘season’ has started with club members competing at the Scottish Sprint Champs (Stirling University) and the CompassSport Trophy (Beecraigs, near Linlithgow). Gemma, Izzy and Anna all achieved excellent results; everyone had something to smile about and more experience was gained by all.
There is a lot of news again this week, read on for more information!

What, when, where of Orienteering with BASOC
It can be hard finding out what is happening for orienteering - here is something to help you with this.
All volunteer run organisations have a number of people who help to keep the club functioning. In BASOC we have four named and elected committee posts - Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Junior Rep. There are other elected committee members - they do not have designated roles.
There is a lot taking place over the next few weeks and months - make a note of dates in your diary so that you do not miss any orienteering opportunities!
First of all, thank you to all who have renewed their membership of the club, Scottish Orienteering and some who have also taken out British Orienteering membership. Jane (Cox) will be in touch if you have forgotten. Please do consider joining, as a minimum, the club and Scottish Orienteering, it does help to support the development of our sport.

Run wild in the woods
Over the winter months this is in the dark, so you need a torch*. 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 have three 1000 lumen headtorches for use by club members at Tuesday night O. Particularly aimed at relative newcomers - these will get you on a level playing field with the pros!
Meet at 6:30 prompt. Please come appropriately dressed for the weather on the night, the sort of thing you would wear if you were going for a trail run.
You need to be back by 7:30pm.
£2 Adults, £1 Juniors for BASOC or other orienteering club members.
£3 Adults, £1.50 Juniors for non members.
