23rd and 24th Feb 2019 British Night Champs Weekend

A wee heads up that an exciting weekend of orienteering is coming your way in Feb:

Sat 23rd afternoon – Urban Sprint SOUL @ Cove, Aberdeen
BREAKING NEWS – Emit Touch Free Punching will be used courtesy of Emit UK
Prepare for fast and furious Sprint action around the housing estates on a brand new map created for us by Graham Gristwood and Chris Smithard*. Pete’s planning courses right now – details will be released soon – and Rachel’s organising so will be after offers of help as we anticipate a good turnout of folk wanting to warm up and while away the hours waiting for the main attraction…

Sat 23rd night – British Night Orienteering Championships @ Muir of Dinnet
Maroc are busy organising this one. Planner Drew Tivendale says he’s very pleased with his courses (IHHO) and Richard Oxlade is doing his best as Controller to keep Drew’s enthusiasm in check. Should be a fantastic night and a chance for you to compete in a Major event within spitting distance of Aberdeen.

Sun 24th – SOL 1 @ Birsemore
Another chance to take on the challenge of Deeside but in daylight this time at the first SOL of 2019.

Online entries for all three events are now open on Fabian 4.Enter Online

*Pete and Rachel’s latest claim to orienteering fame is to have provided B&B, including a fish supper from The Bay, for these GBR athletes. Not every day you get to share tartare sauce with WOC and British Gold medal winners!
