Sunday 26th November – Tannaghmore Gardens, Craigavon Lakes

Our latest Craigavon Community Orienteers’ event. Another newly extended map and in my mind incorporating some of the best bits of the park, previously not included on the old map. I know i’m a little late in posting but the lurgy has had the better of me for most of the week. I’ll be off out into the frosty gardens shortly to finalise the planning under the gorgeous blue skies, but courses on offer will be Yellow, Orange, and Light Green. So if you’re at a loss as to what to do tomorrow and want to get out into the crisp Read More …

 Looking for something to do on Sunday again? Don’t worry it’s time for another Craigavon outing if you wish, to an area not used in years: Gosford Forest Park.

Antrim Castle Gardens Sunday 22nd October

Well that’s the course’s done! The park is in pretty good nick. Only one large tree down. Very little vegetation, and I have access to ALL areas, plus I’ve extended the map a little for more fun along the riverbank. What more can you want on a Sunday afternoon. Courses available: Yellow :  2.1km Orange :  3.3km ‘Mid’ Green : 4km as the crow flies ( bring your compass for this one ). There’s still a chance to book a map if you wish as i haven’t turned the printer on yet. See you tomorrow

Meelmore today – Cancelled

Please note: Sadly, Meelmore this afternoon has been CANCELLED. We have looked at the hillside and it is too wet. These things occasionally happen but don’t worry the event will be rescheduled for a drier Sunday.
