Congratulations to BASOC on becoming only the second club to achieve the SOA Silver Club Accreditation Award!
The club's vision is "Through the provision of opportunities (training and competition) for people to orienteer locally, BASOC will build interest in the sport in the area. BASOC will support orienteering in Scotland by hosting high quality events attractive to all and by encouraging club members to experience orienteering throughout the country - and beyond.
Why not come and join us?"
Orienteers are reminded that all the areas for next year's Scottish 6 Days are embargoed for orienteering. This is especially important for the two areas that will stage the World Ranking Events - Dundurn & Cnoc a'Mhadaidh (Middle Distance) and Craig a Barns (Long Distance). Details of the embargoes are shown on the attached pdf or follow this link.
This winter's ROMP will be set out in Loch Vaa next to Boat of Garten. Access will be from the village itself. Further details will be made available just before Christmas but it is hoped that controls (stakes, flags and pin punches) will be established on Friday 21 December. Maps (pdfs) are free to SOA members and available on request from
Printed copies will also be available from Glenmore Lodge at a later date. There is a £3.50 charge to non-SOA members either for the pdf or printed copy to help cover costs.
The full results, Routegadget and list of winners are all available on the RR website along with the Organiser's and Planner's reports.
The Scottish Score Championships were reprieved so thank you to everyone who turned up. This is a great format for some areas, and is a very popular choice for mountain marathoners.
Congratulations to ECKO who have become the latest club to achieve the SOA Bronze Club Accreditation Award!
Thanks to the committee for engaging in the process and also offering some insights into the adventures of Barnacle Bill and his friends Master Map, Katie Kite and others.
