You should not attend the training if you are showing any symptoms of Covid 19. The training will be managed to take account of Scottish Government & SOA guidelines.

Tuesday=O volunteers needed!

Suzanne is taking on the task of finding volunteers to lead activities throughout the year including the regular Tuesday evening training sessions. If you are willing to help out at training at some point during the year, then please get in touch with Suzanne directly via the Volunteer Coordinator link on the Contacts page of the BASOC website.
There are lots of things that would help the club including just being willing to organise a social get-together occasionally, so don’t worry if you’re not an expert orienteering planner! If you’d like to organise something just get in touch.
You can see the tasks - and who has already signed up for a task - in Sharing T=O tasks v2.
