Gordie Mahood 1973 – 2019

It is with great sadness that we report the untimely passing of Gordie Mahood on 5th February. Gordie was an enthusiastic orienteer, a loyal member of Lagan Valley Orienteers and a dedicated organiser.

The controls have been sited to avoid too much hill climb and to allow the fastest to get onto finding long words. There is something for everyone, novice or well practised alike. You’ll need a headtorch, watch, compass and suitable footwear. As usual the cost is £2 for members and Read More …
