Report from the Chair

First of all, a big ‘Thank you’ to all the volunteers who have done things for BASOC during 2015. It is important to have volunteers giving time; without this the club would not function.

This has been a ‘Big Year’ for BASOC

BASOC also made links with Petal Power through having some common members. Petal Power helped out with car parking at Loch Vaa North; some BASOC members reciprocated by helping to marshal at ‘Ride Like a Grrl’. Links like these are healthy in a small community.

Johannes Petersen is the Regional Development Officer for BASOC & INVOC (part time). Johannes has taken on board the remit of helping to develop BASOC to the next level; he has initiated a variety of things, all of which the club should be able to sustain when his contract concludes in Autumn 2016.

The committee have met 6 times in the past year; much of the business is conducted via email. The meetings give the committee an opportunity to discuss matters face to face. Recently the meetings have been held in the Committee Room in the Aviemore Sports Hub (the room is free to Aviemore SH clubs). At the 2015 A. G. M. the secretary (Gavin) really really wants to stand down; please offer to replace him! Jenny also wishes to stand down from the committee; as a committee member jenny undertook the joint roles of communications and membership. Paul is prepared to take on the latter (if he is re-elected). Who would like to come onto the committee – and maybe be the ‘communications’ person (although this is negotiable). The rest of the committee are prepared to continue for another year. BASOC will remain a healthy club if people will volunteer to run it – so please let Lynne know if you are prepared to be a committee member.

Looking forward

2016 is a year to think about the following in relation to BASOC:

The next Scottish 6 Days of Orienteering will take place on Royal Deeside 30th July to 6th August 2017, with the event centre at Ballater. Could there be a large BASOC presence there?
