eNews February 2019 part 2

Night Orienteering

A few bits and pieces are happening - read on for more about them all!

For the last two Tuesday trainings at Loch Vaa SW the turnout has been excellent - BASOC members must like a challenge! We have also had a few 'visitors' come along to play with the contours! This training will really help you when the evenings are lighter, orienteering navigation will feel so easy!

Meanwhile all the very best to the BASOC folks who are travelling 'over the hill' to the British Night Champs and SOL 1 this weekend. Maybe get a wee report from someone for the website? And some photos?

eNews, January 2019Forthcoming orienteering events

Two updates added 7th January 2019

Welcome to 2019 - and orienteering locally and maybe a bit further away? Some events are coming along soon, it may be winter but there is plenty to go to. Some other events are a bit further away but are cheaper if you enter early.

Please remember to check that you have renewed your BOF or SOA membership - this seems to have slipped by quite a few of you!
I notice some have changed age class this year - enjoy the challenges of this!

Remember that Tuesday training continues, check the BASOC website for updates regarding this.
