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.
Three months after being awarded with a Bronze Accreditation certificate, BASOC have achieved Silver Accreditation.
The new equipment store is now in use.
As usual, life in the orienteering world continues at a pace with BASOC club champs, a new BASOC committee, the start of the Northern Night Cup and dry, warm indoor Tuesday=O sessions!
Even although the days are becoming shorter and the weather cooler, there is still loads going on in the orienteering world!
The 2018 BASOC Club Champs and AGM will take place in Newtonmore Village Hall on Sun 2nd December 2018.
October is a lovely month - great orienteering in colourful forests, the start of using head torches on Tuesday evenings and holiday time for some. What opportunities are coming up and what has been happening?
