Wed 24th Jan 2018
Type of event: Night
Balnagowan DNC. Deceptively difficult in places with subtle contour detail. Sporadic windblow in places but courses avoid the worst of this. Long course will visit the northern hill. Medium will loop round the south eastern part and will use one control twice so read the map carefully.
Our membership for 2018 is now open. This year there will be two types of membership available: through BOF or through SOA. The club strongly encourages you to select the BOF option. To understand why, please read the full article here.

Here is a preliminary schedule and rules for the Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup 2018. Whilst we are only showing 6 events in this preliminary schedule, MAROC are planning a further 6 eligible events this year so we do expect to run the full schedule of 10 events this year.
Next JD2C event is the GRAMP event at Bennachie on 4th February. Once we have confirmation with landowners we will publish the full schedule.
