Further Information

Date - Wednesday 14th November

Time - Mass start at 18:30, courses close 20:00.

Venue – Sauchie - parking by the river at NS770907 Please park tightly-limited space available – do not block the track over the bridge.

Sauchie has been harvested in many places but I have managed to plan two fine courses that will be technically challenging.

Lift shares / pick-ups - Stirling and Bridge of Allan stations are close by, use FVO mail if you need help.

Map – Marcus Pinker map with edits at 1:5,000 using the forest ISOM specification. Pre-printed on waterproof paper.

Courses - Long (approx 4km) and Short (approx 2.6km). TD5 courses.

Entry - Online at https://www.nav.run/ by 10pm on Monday 12th November. NO CONTACT = NO MAP!

Cost - BOF/SOA members, Adults £4 / Juniors/students £3. Non-members £6/£4.

Under 16s – must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Timing - SportIDENT and reflective canes.

Safety - spare torch and whistle are mandatory, and wearing/carrying hooded waterproof jacket is mandatory if deemed necessary by the organiser.

Hazards – This is a relatively remote, working forest with lots of spikey Sitka, some windblow, steep slopes, undergrowth, stony areas with big cliffs, and maybe gruffalo....

Participants take part at their own risk!

Note - Car parks are often close to houses and are often used by others, so please park considerately and change discreetly.

Post event food – The Pirnhall is the nearest eatery and you don’t have to book a table – please feel free to join me there.

Newcomers - If you have never or rarely done night orienteering before, this wouldn’t be a good one to try. If you’re feeling brave then bring a buddy.
