Night Events

Night Events run on a fortnightly basis through the dark winter nights.

The events will provide some great orienteering and merit top billing in your diary! Normally there are two courses provided - a longer course, and a cut-off is defined on the longer course to provide a short course. There is a mass start at 18:30, but the courses will be gaffled to provide additional challenge. Hope to see you there!

Most events are by SI punching.

E mail or phone organiser by 10pm on Monday before event for a map. Indicate if you are doing the longer or shorter course.

Headtorches

The Club have bought 2 powerful head torches which will be available on loan, free of charge, to those who want to give night orienteering a go, but haven't got a decent torch! Contact Martin (by e mail or on 01786 825123) if you would like to loan a head torch.
