Pre Event Info
We're going to go and play on the lovely contours of the open birch forest in the SE part of Loch Vaa. It's technically challenging but with fantastic safety routes to get you back if it all goes wobbly.
Every Tuesday 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.
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.
