An excellent weekends orienteering. Surely Loch Vaa is the premier area for orienteering.

Yesterday at Loch Vaa was probably my most enjoyable day's orienteering.

What a brilliant event today, thanks to the BASOC team.

The courses at Anagach and Loch Vaa were made most enjoyable by what was obviously a great team effort on the part of the club.

Today's forest and course were as good as I've ever experienced. Awesome blue course today - special thanks to the planners
