Rescue practiceTuesday 9 April training session explained.

O-kites

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.

eNews February 2019 part 2

Night Orienteering

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?
