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.
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging adventure sport. It's easy for anyone to start and fun to do. You learn to navigate, develop confidence and discover new places. Orienteering is a sport that exercises both your mind and body.
Two updates added 7th January 2019
Welcome to 2019 - and orienteering locally and maybe a bit further away? Some events are coming along soon, it may be winter but there is plenty to go to. Some other events are a bit further away but are cheaper if you enter early.
Please remember to check that you have renewed your BOF or SOA membership - this seems to have slipped by quite a few of you!
I notice some have changed age class this year - enjoy the challenges of this!
Remember that Tuesday training continues, check the BASOC website for updates regarding this.
South London Orienteers (SLOW) have produced a series of eight videos showing different techniques used in orienteering. The videos are presented by different athletes from the GB Orienteering team and filmed in different locations.
Minutes of the 2018 AGM are now available.
New Year beckons and if we are looking to submit a team for the compass sport heat on Sunday 17th March 2019 then you need to let Ann know ASAP.
