With the AGM coming up, please cast your eye over this (or get parents to do it for you!) and let us know if you think we've missed anything for you - we wouldn't want anyone to miss out on a badge that they are entitled to - you can use to let us know.
It has now been agreed that the MAROC event on 1st October will be included in the JD2C, so we're back up to 9 events. The remaining events counting for the JD2C are therefore Cambus o' May on 1st October, Forvie on 15th October and Scolty on 5th November. Scoring will now be best 5 out of 9 events.
Those of you who have trophies, please return them to John Mason at one of the upcoming events so that they can be engraved and awarded to this year's winners at the MAROC and/or GRAMP AGMs.
We have had to reduce the number of qualifying races for the JD2C: the best 4 of 8 races will now count towards the final results, with the revised schedule here. This has been caused by the reduced number of level C events this year, and in particular with Scolty having been postponed from17th September to the 5th November (therefore no Bennachie event).
The remaining 2 events counting for the JD2C are therefore Forvie on 15th October and Scolty on 5th November.
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.
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.
Maroc Talent Squad and World Schools juniors recently spent a long weekend training in Glen Affric, running in the footsteps of the world’s best orienteers from WOC 2015. The aims of the camp were; to inspire the youngsters to commit to orienteering, to foster team spirit and provide support in preparation for the Worlds Schools 2017, and at the same time to get some quality technical and physical training under their belts.
