Sporteering is back !!! Hopefully the first of many in 2020. If you fancy having a go at planning one pop a message in the comment box below, or alternatively contact any committee member.
Meeting at Tim Horton’s at Connswater Shopping Centre, Belfast, BT5 5DL at 7pm to jog out to the start location. The extensive East Belfast map has been upgraded to the new ISSprOM2019 standard. Have a look at this picture to get a snapshot of the main changes: https://ocad.com/blog/2019/05/issprom-2019/
