Resuming orienteeringScottish Orienteering's guidelines on permitted activities - updated 6 July
At the bottom of this page is a link to Scottish Orienteering's guidelines on what orienteering is now permitted in Scotland and a colour-coded guide to what is currently allowed and may hopefully be allowed in future phases.
Following these rules, we can't yet meet physically on Tuesday evenings, but will continue our online social meetings on Tuesdays instead.
Activities we are allowed to do are:
- Run with a map - perhaps previously used courses, or choose one of our simple measured 5km track runs
- Put out and use kites (not punches or SI units), printing our own maps - currently available at Uath Lochans, please contact Hilary Q for PDF of map
- Use MapRun courses (we currently don't have any of these but Lynne is trying to get some set up - thanks Lynne!)
- Coach on a small group basis.
When doing any of these activities we must:
- Maintain physical distancing as advised
- Abide by limits on number of people and number of households permitted to meet outdoors (currently 8 & 3)
- STAY AT HOME if we have any symptoms.
For many of our areas, please remember that it is ground-nesting bird and capercaillie season. If you want confirmation whether or not you can use an area, just ask one of the committee.
The next announcements from Scottish Government are due on Thursday 9 July, and these are expected to include an extension to numbers of people allowed to meet outdoors. Depending on the detail, we might be able to get back to meeting on Tuesdays soon - watch this space!
