Regular Orienteering Map Programme

ROMP logo

ROMP joins WOC training again - now at Inshriach.  Top-notch technical training open to all, plus the chance to rub shoulders with the world’s best orienteers.  Information sheet now available for download includes description of terrain, planned exercise and travel directions.  From mid-December controls will be out in 4 prime Speyside areas, with coaching available from 23rd to 26th December.

Inshriach is renowned for its detailed contours - are you up to the challenge?  Controls are now out in the best bit, near the gliding field.  The suggested course is intended to give several long legs through detailed squiggles.  More detail is on the information sheet which is available for download (see below).  These controls will be collected in at the end of November.

From mid-December controls will be out in Uath Lochans, Achlean, Inshriach and Loch Vaa, with coaching available from 23rd to 26th December.  The fee for coaching will be £5 per half-day session for SOA members (£10 for non-members) which includes the map.  This is, of course, all weather permitting.  It might turn into ski orienteering.

Map packs cost £3.50 each per area (for SOA members) and are available from Glenmore Lodge reception (groups please e-mail if you're going to want more than about 5 or 6 map packs) , or by post (add 75p for one, £1 for two, £1.50 for 3-5, please phone to discuss postage for larger quantities).  You can also arrange to collect maps from Insh, which involves a very short diversion off the A9 as you head north through Strathspey.  If you take this option please give a couple of days' notice to avoid disappointment.
