Low key level D event
3 courses, white/yellow, orange/light green, green / blue
Terrain is open, runnable pine forest with some windblow but courses generally avoid worst areas.

As part of the COPE project we will be running a 4-week block of After-School Club in Ballater on a Tues, 3:30-4:30 pm, starting on 7th March. This club is targeted primarily at beginners in P5-7 and will build on the sessions introduced last autumn in the school. The club will meet at the Primary School but will normally walk over to Craigendarroch Woods to train in the forest.
Further information and application form for the Ballater club is available here
After the Easter holidays there will be a similar 4-week block held in Braemar.
We will shortly be re-starting After-School Orienteering clubs in Banchory and Aboyne, suitable for beginners and youngsters with some experience in P5-7. The Banchory club will run on a Tues 3:45-4:45 pm starting on 21st March and the Aboyne club will run on a Thu 5:00-6:00 pm starting on 9th March.

Rules and events list for the 2017 JD2C. On the events list there are a few things to confirm, so look out for further updates.
The next Sunday event from GRAMP is a middle distance race at Balmedie with yellow, light green, green and blue courses.
On the blue and green courses, they've added a twist: two or three of the controls will have no control code provided, so you’ll have to find the correct control unit purely from the map and control description. There will be several false controls placed nearby to try to confuse you! … and each time you punch a wrong control, a 3 minute time penalty will be applied.
Full details on the GRAMP website.
