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!
Badenoch & Strathspey Orienteering Club (BASOC) is pleased to extend a warm welcome to all competitors at the 2017 Veteran Home International. We offer a weekend of top class terrain, great planning, and an excellent accommodation package in the Spey valley. The VHI will take place in conjunction with the popular annual Wolf Weekend which BASOC has hosted for the last 4 years.
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.
