BASOC eNews August 2020

Izzy Cox

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.

2019 6days BASOC spotting

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).
