Earlier this year I received an email informing me that I had been selected for the JROS (Junior Regional Orienteering Squad) Lagganlia camp which took place in early August. The camp is focused solely on second year W/M14’s like me all around Britain and only around 25 kids are selected so I was very happy (and shocked) when I found out I had a place.

Upon gaining selection to the Scottish Junior Orienteering Squad (ScotJOS), Izzy, Anna and I were able to attend the biannual ScotJOS Summer Tour- hurrah! This is when the squad heads off abroad for around two weeks, training, racing and generally enjoying summer in Scandinavia!
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.
The three AGM skivers (Jess, Kat and Izzy) thought that they should update the club on why they didn’t join in the battle of club champion. Read on to find out more, written by Izzy (with the help of Kat and Jess on the long journey home!).
Round up of the Junior Inter Area weekend by Kat McGougan.
The Junior inter areas is an annual competition where Scotland is split into 3 areas: North, West and East. BASOC competes for North, and after a narrow defeat last year, we were keen to win back the overall title!
Congratulations to our 3 ScotJOS juniors; Kat, Izzy and Anna!
Scottish Orienteering announced the Scottish Junior Squad for 2017/18 last week. BASOC are delighted to be represented by 3 juniors! We would like to congratulate the girls on their hard work in gaining selection and wish them the best of luck over the next year.

It’s back…Schools League 2017!

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.
