An Affa Fine Weekend
Maroc Talent Squad recently spent a long weekend training near Tomintoul. They all worked hard, but had lots of fun along the way. At the end of the camp they put together this report of the weekend.
Special thanks to the Orienteering Foundation for help in supporting the costs of this camp.
Just to highlight to everyone, as this is still showing up in the events list from Grampian, that the 17th September event at Scolty has been cancelled.
MAROC are now offering club training at Dess for all MAROC club members on that date.
GRAMP are now planning to run the Scolty event on the 5th November in place of the Bennachie event currently in the schedule.
Maroc will be organising a block of 4 introductory orienteering sessions aimed at family participation with full coaching provided. After-school clubs will also be starting up again in Aboyne and Banchory after the summer holidays.
GRAMP is hosting an Event Safety Workshop on Monday 25th April, 6.30-9.30pm in Cults, Aberdeen. Anyone interested in attending should contact Helen Rowlands () to check availability of places.
More information on the gramp website: http://grampoc.com/2016/03/21/event-safety-workshop-25-april-2016/
The course is suitable for all current or potential planners, organiser and controllers, or just anyone who's interested in learning more.
Please note that the Level C event originally planned for 3rd January has been moved to the 10th January. Note that this is also the first JD2C event of the year. The training session for the 10th January has therefore been cancelled.
Anyone who can't wait until 10th January for their first event of the year, don't forget the Gramp 'Hangover Handicap' event at Hazelhead on 2nd Jan.
