INVOC are inviting BASOC (and MOR) to take part in their MapRun series of events. Below is a message from James Laird and Jon Shepherd.
Things are starting to move forward towards being able to do more orienteering - now that is good news- here are some examples:
- BASOC have been able to get out training in the forest with many club members taking advantage of the exercises provided by Hilary Q.
- Junior selection races will take place next weekend in the Lake District.
- The British Orienteering Squad have just had a week long training camp held on Speyside & the Moray Coast (yes some did find Creag Beag at Kingussie to be quite tough!).
- Some Scottish clubs have been able to have an event - or two - for their club members.
It has been a relatively quiet time since the last eNews - this is all about to change with the recently issued guidelines. Yes we can orienteer in our local forest areas, albeit a small group at a time.
We are edging closer to being able to go orienteering again; the "Stay local" advice (travel up to 5 miles from home) is still applicable which curtails many of us being able to access our areas (and add in restrictions due ground nesting birds and capercaillie).
BASOC, Scottish Orienteering, British Orienteering and World Orienteering news!
Congratulations to Alice Kemsley!
What is life like in the deep south (well, Glasgow)?
While we have been unable to orienteer in our lovely forests, there has been quite a bit related to orienteering going on - in the virtual world, taking part in a huge variety of O games, the BASOC committee is still working hard for the club and so on.
Lockdown Orienteering - what is this all about? Jess took part in the first weekend of 'races', we all should have been at the JK but we all know why we were not! Read on to find out about the experience Jess had with this.
More news, more ideas of things for you to do for your orienteering 'fix'.
