It is all most the end of June, school is out and we are all enjoying the hot and sunny weather (yes it is hot & sunny in Denmark as well). This eNews has been a bit delayed as we had virtually no internet signal for a few days.
May has been a busy month, so here is the news, part 2!
May is a busy month on the orienteering calendar - lots of opportunities for racing and training, as well as having a chat and sharing some cake!
The second part of May 2018 eNews will come out towards the end of the month.
The IOF (International Orienteering Federation) has recently updated the specifications of some map symbols. Below is a guide to those changes, originally produced by Berkshire Orienteers and now reformatted to make it easier to read on small screens.

It is a real pleasure to be running in drier forests and warmer temperatures - will it last? A shorter eNews this time - please do read all and take action though!
The days are starting to become longer, we are nearly at the end of the Tuesday = DarkO season. The orienteering ‘season’ has started with club members competing at the Scottish Sprint Champs (Stirling University) and the CompassSport Trophy (Beecraigs, near Linlithgow). Gemma, Izzy and Anna all achieved excellent results; everyone had something to smile about and more experience was gained by all.
There is a lot of news again this week, read on for more information!
There is a lot taking place over the next few weeks and months - make a note of dates in your diary so that you do not miss any orienteering opportunities!
First of all, thank you to all who have renewed their membership of the club, Scottish Orienteering and some who have also taken out British Orienteering membership. Jane (Cox) will be in touch if you have forgotten. Please do consider joining, as a minimum, the club and Scottish Orienteering, it does help to support the development of our sport.
Membership info here on the BASOC website
I am sure that you are all looking forward to competing in lovely forests and taking part in BASOC training to prepare you for competition. There is lots to tell you about, so please read on and make sure you put dates in diary etc.
The IOF (International Orienteering Federation) have recently released the latest version of control descriptions.
Do you know what all those symbols mean? Can you differentiate between the 'north western knoll on the east side' from the 'eastern knoll on the north west side'?
