Control Descriptions

How to interpret them

The IOF (International Orienteering Federation) have recently released the latest version of control descriptions.
Do you know what all those symbols mean? Can you differentiate between the 'north western knoll on the east side' from the 'eastern knoll on the north west side'?

Download the full 32 page PDF to discover more control locations than you ever thought could exist.

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.

Special Thanks

WOLF volunteer support

Three non-BASOC members provided a lot of support to the organisers of the WOLF 2017. Anne Hicking (GRAMP) did a lot of the VHI organising and preparation. Robin & Sheila Strain (ELO) helped out on the computing side of things. Robin in particular did some magical stuff with combining all the data from all the individual events into one SiTiming event. We presented them with a mounted copy of the Inshriach map signed by club members.
