A brief summary of the discussion with Scottish Orienteering on 8th October 2020
Alice and Faith attended the Talent Assessment weekend in Edinburgh at the start of October. They both had a great time, learnt lots and came home with big smiles! Faith has written an article for the website - and also find out what the rest of the Kenyons got up to!
There are events you can go to now - read on for more information. A few other things are also starting to happen, details below.
Thank you Jane for responding the the appeal for news!
More is starting to happen in the orienteering scene; if this continues the eNews will be posted every two weeks (approximately).
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).
