Basingstoke Andover District Orienteers
- the orienteering club for North Hampshire
This is a SCOA League event (SCOL2) at Pamber Forest & Silchester Common, near Tadley. FINAL DETAILS now available and pre-entry open to midnight Monday 23rd.
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.
Many congratulations to BADO members Jo Ludford and Jon Robinson on their marriage.
Some notable performances at Hambledon in the 2017 SCOA Championships:
We hope you enjoyed today's event at a blustery but dry Harewood Forest.
Results and RouteGadget are now available - plot your course and compare with others.
March 12th - a depleted BADO team finished 3rd at Cold Ash in the heats, but not too far behind GO and qualifiers SARUM.
Lots of pictures here.
The March edition of the SCOA Bulletin is here.
BADO is a relatively small club. Nevertheless, we aim to run several traditional Sunday events, and summer evening events each year

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.
Club meetings are normally at the Basingstoke Sports & Social Club on a Wednesday at 7:30pm.
The next meeting is 15th November.
