WEE Series Volunteers

With the WEE Series nearly here (hooray!) we could do with a lot of on-the-night volunteers.  You will still get to run!  Please check out the volunteer roster.  If we all do a wee bit (WEE bit, sorry), well then 2018 will be another great WEE Series.  All training provided, it’s a lot of fun!  Email volunteer@lvo.org.uk   Here’s the link to the roster:  http://lvo.org.uk/volunteers/

Open Mountain Training This Sunday

Superb open mountain training on Meelmore this Sunday 29th April.  Lots of coaches on hand, have a go at a couple of exercises and then practise it all on a course.  It’s all in conjunction with our hub Tollymore Orienteers.  Fun & informal – really high quality standard of training, right from yellow course all the way up to TD5. Ready to go at 2pm from Meelmore Lodge, we’ll be back there by 4pm ready for tea & buns. Perfect to take your O to the next level – or fine tune ready for the Irish Champs! All the info Read More …

Fixture List Gremlins

**Beware The Fixtures List**  It’s still acting up 🙁  However the mechanics are on the case.  There’s a useful post on the NI Orienteering website though, so you don’t miss an orienteering trick.  Link is here

New Fixtures List – and a new home for the Volunteer Roster

There’s been much behind-the-scenes magic from webmaster Jeff to unify the fixtures list – it’s here and it’s rather marvellous! If you’re an organiser and baffled about how to update the info, you need to edit the event info on Facebook.  Contact Jeff (website@lvo.org.uk) or Susan (volunteer@lvo.org.uk) and we can guide you through it. This all means the Volunteer Roster has a new home here (scroll down the page).  Check it out!  Thanks largely to Stephanie for much arm-twisting on Saturday, the Event Officials side is looking healthier than it has in a good while.  Still lots of opportunities though, either for Officials or Read More …

Trophies Galore at NI Score & Night Champs

The NI Orienteering keeper-of-the-trophies (that’s Ann Savage) would like to remind everyone that the prize giving for the 2017 season is nearly here!

Clear plenty of space in your car boot for all the silverware!

Volunteering – please read

Evening folks, It’s quiet on the volunteering front.  Too quiet.  We have so much great orienteering coming up!  Folks this takes volunteers.  If we all do a bit, whatever role you’d like to try, it’ll happen.  If not………….well then events can’t happen.  Simple as. Some feedback I’ve had is “no-one has asked me to help”.  Don’t worry, you can fire on ahead and volunteer without being asked!  What’s more, it’s so much more fun when that happens. The current roster is in the photos (EDIT – no it’s not – it went blurry!), on each fixture, and on Facebook (LVO Club Discussion Read More …
