Big congratulations to Alice Kemsley for a convincing victory on W14A at the British Long Distance Championships yesterday, 5th May.
Many of you have attended the Event Safety Workshop, which includes some approaches to rescues. Few of us have ever been involved in a genuine rescue, so I thought it would be useful to see how the practicalities of a rescue might pan out, and on 9 April I simulated the situation where the planner/coach appeared not to have returned from putting out the training kites.
Lots to let you know about this month - with several items requiring a response so read on!

Rita from the TickApp Project will be attending our Newtonmore event in May. Here's some information from her about the project.
We all enjoy and derive great benefit from the regular orienteering on Tuesday evenings, but it would be good to share the work out a bit - can you help?
We're looking for organisers for three local events - nice low-key things ideal for someone who's new to event organising, and with plenty of experts around to mentor and support you just as much as you want.
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?
Here is the first bit of news for February; the committee have a meeting next Monday (11th) so there will probably be another eNews after that.
It can be hard finding out what is happening for orienteering - here is something to help you with this.
