Club fun score and social, Oakley

Well the weather didn't help did it? Some of us remember the days before waterproof maps, sealed bags and Tyvek control cards; all orienteering was like that in the rain.
There may be some (approximate) results if any of the soggy map remains are decipherable.

Wedding Congratulations

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves walking or running whilst navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass. The aim is to navigate in sequence between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It's a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Watch this video and see ten reasons why orienteering is the best sport ever get an idea.
