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).
BASOC, Scottish Orienteering, British Orienteering and World Orienteering news!
Congratulations to Alice Kemsley!
What is life like in the deep south (well, Glasgow)?
While we have been unable to orienteer in our lovely forests, there has been quite a bit related to orienteering going on - in the virtual world, taking part in a huge variety of O games, the BASOC committee is still working hard for the club and so on.
More news, more ideas of things for you to do for your orienteering 'fix'.
We face a very uncertain time in every aspect of life; it certainly is not life as we have known it.
Many of us are missing our weekly parkrun fix, so BASOC are offering a substitute - a collection of downloadable maps showing enjoyable 5km runs in lovely forests, which require only basic navigation skills.
YOU MUST CHECK THE CURRENT REGULATIONS BEFORE YOU GO, - THEY MAY CHANGE AND WE CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO UPDATE THIS PAGE IMMEDIATELY. In particular, you must abide by limits on maximum number of people/households allowed to meet outdoors.
IF YOU FEEL UNWELL, STAY SAFE INDOORS.
TUESDAY MORNING 17 MARCH: BRITISH ORIENTEERING HAVE RULED THAT "ALL ORIENTEERING ACTIVITIES IN THE UK HAVE TO BE SUSPENDED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT".
This supersedes the changes posted on Monday night.
