Have you renewed your membership yet?
You do not need to be a member of a club to participate in orienteering, but joining an orienteering club, along with Scottish Orienteering and British Orienteering, brings many benefits.
If you always forget about renewing your membership you might want to consider completing a Direct Debit Mandate and not have to worry again.
