Croeso 2016 update

Couple of photos for you, courtesy of Lindsey Esson, showing the mixed bag of orienteering/weather we’ve been sampling. First was taken on the training area at  Merthyr Mawr sand dunes and the second was taken at today’s start at Mynydd Llangynidr, limestone moorland dotted with monster depressions, sinkholes and pits and visibility down to a few hundred metres due to drizzly rain and mist. Mmmmm!

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.
