Make sure you get to the training this Sunday in Belvoir Park at 1230. We’ll be focusing on relating map symbols to the ground – a basic but incredibly important skill. More infomation on the training news page.
Remember to stay afterwards for the score event at 2.00 in Belvoir. There will be a 45 minute time limit with 5 easy, 5 medium and 5 harder controls so it’s suitable for everyone. See the ‘About Orienteering’ page for more info about Score.
Have a look on the right hand side of the screen at our gadgets and you will see a link to the O Zone Magazine. This is an orienteering magazine for juniors and you can download it from this link. Happy reading.
Some more information is now available about the junior training event on the 27 Jan. Just go to the Training News page to find out more. Make sure you make it on the 27 Jan as this will be a great chance to get some training and then put it into practice straight away at the club score training event. Hope to see you all then. Please Email us to let us know if you are coming.
