Bring A Friend Orienteering (BAFO)
Why BAFO again this year? We were able to remap, buy equipment and run the teaching course thanks to Awards for All and the CNPA. Our commitment is to encourage more people of all ages and abilities to have a go. Hence the BAFO! Please can you bring along someone who is new to the sport or has not participated for some time? Help will be available for beginners.
The cafe will stay open so you can buy hot/cold drinks, sandwiches, home baking and snacks.
Teaching Orienteering Part 1
We are offering this course again, with Hilary as the Tutor, on Tuesday 5th May and Monday 18th May. Both days at Laggan Wolftrax Centre and in the forest from 4.15-7.15pm.
Thanks to funding from Awards for All and the CNPA, the cost is again just £25 including tea, coffee and biscuits so come along and let friends and colleagues know about the opportunity.

Explanation of Score courses
You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
Hired timing chips (Si-Cards, dibbers)
We provide a free loan of these if you don't have your own, but if you loose it there will be a £30 charge for it's replacement.
