Membership

What to do

  • Existing BOF Members: You will get renewal direct from BOF and should send fees as directed.
  • New Members: The easiest way is to join online via the BOF website; but you could also drop a note to Jen, our membership secretary telling her you have joined. That way, we can welcome you into the club.
  • Second Club members: Please contact Jen, our membership secretary and pay her the appropriate fees.

The membership year is from 1st Jan to 31st Dec.

Membership Categories

Orienteering Members
FVO orienteering membership requires affiliation to both the Scottish and British orienteering governing bodies – ie the Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) and British Orienteering Federation (BOF) respectively.

Second Club members
Orienteers who are joining FVO as a second club, and already have appropriate governing body membership – need only join FVO.

Membership Grades

  • Senior – any member aged 21 or older on 31 December of the membership year;
  • Junior – any member aged 20 or younger on 31 December of the membership year;
  • Family Membership applies to spouses or parents/guardians and juniors sharing the same permanent address.

Please make sure you claim Gift Aid

The Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) is a charity and can claim gift aid tax relief on the SOA part of your annual membership fees. Even better, the SOA has agreed to return this money to clubs for a minimum of 3 years, and potentially longer.

Gift aid can only be claimed through completion of a gift aid form by each member. You can do this online with SOA. The process is so easily, takes a few minutes to complete and you receive a nice thank you email from SOA once done. Just follow this link

For every gift aid form completed, FVO receives more money. So what’s stopping you.

And if you are still confused

Please contact Jen, our membership secretary.
