GMC – fingers crossed everyone

It is still our hope that the Grampian Mountain Challenge can go ahead in November 2021. 

If we think it could go ahead, we plan to open entries later than we would normally do, probably around 1st August, to allow us to gauge as well as possible how things are progressing, what changes might need to be in place, and the views of other relevant bodies.

Please keep an eye on the Grampian Orienteers Club website for further updates.

Covid 19 info

Check our C19 page for info on how orienteering events will look as we start to come out of Lockdown and get out into the forests again.

TICK AWARENESS AND TREE DISEASES

green_tick_symbolTicks (no not this kind, the bad kind) just love to move in on unsuspecting orienteers. Here's a brief guide on what to look for and how to remove the wee critters.
Scotland is still suffering outbreaks of tree diseases and we can do our bit to help stop the spread and also continue good working relationships with landowners whose land we use by following the guidelines given here.
