For those of us not at the Scottish Six Days there will be the chance to take part in the WEE at Musgrave Park on Wed 2 Aug. Registration from 1800 with starts from 1830 (hopefully). Last starts 1930. Courses close 2000. There are two courses on offer. Long is 3.3 Km and Short is 1.8 km. The start is located in the car park. See You there.
Don’t forget. There is an extra fixture this week. Everyone is welcome, but under 16’s will need to be accompanied. It will be something different to normal and you will need a pen.
Meet at Queen’s Road Car Park for a 6:30 to 7:00 start, and bring a pen.
The first vacation period listed should have been Tues 25th to Sun 30th July i.e. next Tuesday.
With thanks to the NHS for my physical recovery and to the Club Committee for the (much needed!) hardware and software replacements I am delighted to announce that LVO Map Printing Services is once again on the air BUT holiday plans means that it will have to be suspended between Tues 26th and Sun 30th June and Tues 15th and Sun 27th August, all dates inclusive.
If any WEE planners want to make use of the services could you please also specify numbers of maps required? The absence of published results means that I am unable to gauge demand.
Wednesday 26th July – City of Lisburn
For all those who haven’t evacuated the Country during July and are bored and missing their summer Orienteering, or even just want a little warm up before heading to Scotland; I have an extra fixture for you: A Club Night: A low key Urban Score event with a difference, around the Parks and Streets of Lisburn.
Although many of the control sites will be within traffic free areas, because this is an Urban Score Event and I can’t predict your routes, ALL under 16’s will need to be accompanied by an adult, but that shouldn’t be a problem as this will be a good event to do as a family! Why not have a picnic afterwards or adjourn to a local hostelry to discuss routes.
The Car Park is free from 6 and if you wish you can start from half 6, or alternatively wait until a mass start at 7. You’ll then have 45 minutes to get to know Lisburn a little better. Please note you will need to be back by 8 as that is when the Castle Gardens Close. And BRING a PEN! You’ll need one!
Location : Queen’s Road Car Park ( opposite the Island at the bottom of the Castle Gardens ) Coordinates 54 30 42.3N 06 02 15.6W
