Run wild in the woods
Tuesday=O, 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!
So dig out that compass and give it a go.
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
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!
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!!
A bit of information about our new look Tuesdays. The first month will be based from Boat of Garten hall and the orienteering focus is, 'aiming off'.
Run wild in the woods
Tuesday=O, so we go out and do some orienteering. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically, and now it's in the dark!
So dig out that headtorch and give it a go.
This autumn we are going to be running a BASOC junior club. This is aimed at juniors (under 20’s) who have done some orienteering already (mostly at our events over the last year or so), but do get in touch if you’re a beginner and would like to come along!
Tuesday 31st March was a busy evening - the first Tuesday = O in daylight and the start of the first 'Family Orienteering Block'.
These Introduction to Planning and Event Safety for Organisers workshops are part of a joint initiative between BASOC and INVOC to provide free training and support for members.
We are putting on a series of 6 evening sessions aimed at beginners to teach the basics of the sport. Suitable for all ages (children and adults). *Children to be accompanied by an adult (they can join in too!).
An opportunity to run around Grantown-on-Spey using a mixture of urban and woodland virtual control sites. You download a copy of the map as a PDF, print it out yourself, and then run around the course.
