MAROC committee are proposing that the level D event at Coull this Sunday 30th April count as a JD2C event. This is contrary to the note on 15th April that Tyrebagger would be the next JD2C event.
Although Coull is a Level D event, there is a good range of courses and any beginners can be shadowed on the white.
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.
The Aberdeen University Orienteering Club is organising the first ever (as far as we are aware) 100 control point race around the Aberdeen Uni campus. Full details here.
Note that early email entries will close for this event on the 23rd of November.
Final tables for the 2016 JD2C are in! Well done to all taking part and especially to our age category winners...
