Joining

British Membership
Full British membership of GRAMP also includes membership of the Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) and British Orienteering (BOF) which gives you the right to compete in National Championships not to mention discounts at many national retailers and reduced event entry fees.

2018 Membership fees are  Junior: £3.30  Senior: £18.00
Family: Depends on the number of Juniors and Seniors living at the same address
Starts at £21.30 for 1 Senior and 1 Junior – add £3.30 for every additional Junior
Starts at £36 for 2 Senior and 0 Junior – add £3.30 for every Junior

To join GRAMP as a full member for the first time please follow the instructions at this link:
http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/index.php?pg=join_online&step=1&ms_club_id=71
(If you’re already a member, don’t follow that link but instead log into the BOF website and renew on the My Account page.)

Scottish Membership
Alternatively, you can join as a Scottish member which includes membership of GRAMP and SOA only and although this is  cheaper – Junior Free, Senior £8.00 – it means you wouldn’t be competitive in British National Championships and some other major competitions. It’s aimed at those who enjoy orienteering locally with the advantage of reduced event entry fees for members and discounts at some retailers.

To join as a Scottish member online follow this link to SiEntries: www.sientries.co.uk/event_series.php?series_id=236
You will need to create an SiEntries account first, then join GRAMP.
Or phone the SOA office Thursdays/Fridays: 01479 861374

For fuller details and comparison of the two options take a look at the SOA website membership page.

Whichever option you choose, please also send an email telling us you’ve just joined and a few words about any previous O experience to Membership Secretary, Helen, using this form so we can start sending you information about events etc ASAP.

If you’re a tax payer, then SOA can reclaim tax on the SOA portion of your membership fee if you fill in this Gift Aid form and send it to Helen via membership@grampoc. (SOA is a charity so the fee is considered as a donation and SOA can reclaim 25p in every £1 of Senior fee paid.)

 

UPCOMING EVENTS (click series or event names for details link)

We’re slowly starting up again but at the moment it’s club members only (to aid contact tracing should the need arise and keep numbers attending events to a minimum.) We’ll send emails to members for individual events as they come up as arrangements may change. See our Covid 19 page for more info.

You can join the Mobile O revolution though and download the MapRun app and have a go at some local courses using your phone to time yourself and even navigate with. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.
