It’s back…Schools League 2017!
After the success of last year’s inaugural schools league, we’re back again! This year there will be a warm-up event in Kingussie, before the 3 series races.
The perfect way to start orienteering. Come along to our family introduction to orienteering sessions and be coached by Mehmet Karatay, one of our club coaches, in the essentials of orienteering. The sessions run alongside our usual Tuesday training, so you'll get to meet the rest of us too!
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.
Exciting opportunity for north juniors - check out the attached image!

This year we had a team in the Jamie Stevenson Trophy for the first time since 2008 - well done girls! Not only did they run they have also written a report too :-)
BASOC Schools Orienteering League
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.
