BASOC members have been out and about orienteering in various parts of Scotland.
Read all about their exploits and view photos in a separate article.

1. Summer time events!

Regarding Lochaber 2021:
From Gemma, re Day 5 (Creag Dhubh): Many thanks to everyone who helped out at Creag Dhubh. The car parking and string course were both very successful and the farmer has thanked
us for leaving the area so tidy. As usual, great teamwork from BASOC.
There is also an article and photos in the 'Strathy' (Strathspey & Badenoch Herald, 12th August 2021). Thanks to Jo for ensuring that BASOC had good publicity from the event.

2. Tuesday=O

All information about Tuesday=O has now been placed onto one page on the website.
“For August, we will meet at Uath Lochans - the car park on the north side of the paw-print lochans, grid ref. NH835023. Our underlying theme for the month is how we can learn from each other (and how helping each other helps us to learn too!).”

HELP is required for September: Hilary Q is keen for someone to plan some activities for September - preferably for the whole month, but she is grateful of all offers.

The event scheduled for Saturday 28th August will not take place due to various circumstances.

Invitation from INVOC
INVOC invites you to the latest iROMP (INVOC Regular Orienteering Mapping Programme) at Creag Leach, approx. 5 miles SW of Inverness. There are four courses courtesy of Alec Keith: orange, light green, green and blue. It’s not an organised event– the controls have been laid out discreetly in the woodland, so just print a map and go run the courses in your own time. There are no timing devices. Maps were distributed in the INVOC weekly news email on 3 August. Other clubs can email enquiries"at"invocmail.org.uk to get the maps and details.
