Volunteering Update

Hi everyone,

With just 4 LVO events left in 2017 (but lots of other non-event stuff happening, hooray!) it’s time to fill in the blanks on the volunteer roster.  Remaining fixtures are:

14th October – Donard Forest

28th October – Crawfordsburn

11th November – Tyrella

18th November – Carnfunnock

You can volunteer for a Key Official role (planner/controller/organiser) or an on-the-day role.  Maybe a nice cosy MOO role now it’s getting autumnal out there???  Email volunteer@lvo.org.uk

Full fixture list (including all the non-LVO events too) is here.  Look each individual event on the LVO fixtures list here to check out the roles available.

Reminder – Ballymena event POSTPONED

Just a reminder that the Ballymena urban event has been POSTPONED.  It was originally scheduled for this Saturday 23rd.  Next O adventures are this Wednesday (training at Lady Dixon, see Andrew’s post) & this Sunday (Beat the Street East Belfast, keep an eye for info coming soon).

On a brighter note, CONGRATULATIONS to all the LVO runners at last weekend’s Mourne Mountain Marathon.  Orienteers galore, including Declan & Trevor 4th in B class, Alan & Andrew 2nd in C class, Greg & Aine 3rd plus Stephen & Colin 4th in the new One-Day Score, and finally Paul with (non-LVO) Matthew a commanding 1st in Elite 🙂  Full results are here.


Beat the Street is GO

Beat the Street has started and the first of our Beat the Street Sunday Afternoon Sessions in partnership with Active Belfast is this Sunday 17 Sep. Meet up at 2.45pm at the brand new Girdwood Community Hub, 10 Girdwood Ave, Belfast, BT14 6EG. Girdwood Community Hub is between Antrim Road and Cliftonpark Avenue. Then from 3.00pm to 3.45pm the challenge is to search out Beat the Street boxes in the locality.

If you have a Beat the Street card and map please bring them. If you haven’t even a clue what Beat the Street is all about, just turn up and we will have everything you need to get your started. All ages are welcome, with under 16s to please be accompanied by an adult.

And we have a nice piece on the British Orienteering newspage!

It’s Tuesday

Guess what?!?

It’s Tuesday and that can only mean one thing: Orienteering in Edenvilla Park, Craigavon.

Courses are designed:

Newcomer :     1.5 km                                                 Junior / Intermediate :    2.5km                 Senior :    3.6km  ( optimal route )                         and if that’s not enough for you there is a full blown Snooker-O. See if you can get 15 reds with 15 colours in the 40 mins allowed.

Why stay at home feeling bored. Come and join us for our last Tuesday evening event of 2017.
