Attention all juniors! Are you missing your regular fix of orienteering? Did you know that there are lots of orienteering activities you can try out at home?
Whilst we are all in lockdown, an ideal time to listen to a collection of recent broadcasts from River Dee radio featuring MAROC orienteering:
September 2019: Orienteering at Glen Feardar
December 2019: Local Sports Personality Jon Musgrave
Here are the JD2C standings after the event at Birsemore on 8th March.
As I'm sure everyone is aware, this will be the last update for some time. The next counting event will be advised when orienteering resumes following all relevant guidelines from BOF and UK government.
We are all aware of the ongoing coronavirus situation. I am reproducing here the recent communication from British Orienteering - we have been requested to cancel all events for the next 12 weeks and the events at Tillyfourie, Redburn and Sluie have now been removed from the events list.
Full statement below.
At the Aberdeenshire Sports Awards on Fri 13th March, Mar Orienteering Club was awarded Sports Club of the Year for the 2nd year in a row!
Banchory, 25th Mar 6:00-8:30pm
A workshop will be held in Banchory on 25th March on how to use and set up courses with the MapRun app. The workshop will be held in the GP room of the old sports centre adjacent to the Academy, from 6:00-8:30pm.
After-school orienteering will restart in Aboyne next week, Thu 27th Feb, with a block of 5 weekly sessions leading up to the Easter holidays.
An explanation for those new to the club: juniors will automatically gain credit for participation (badges awarded for 5, 10, 25 ,50 & 100 events) and for running colour courses within various criteria (iron, bronze, silver and gold badges can be earned). Badges earned during the year are normally awarded at the club AGM in November.
If you think that your junior has run events for which they have not been credited, let Pat know (publicity - see contacts page).
We will be organising a further block of introductory coached orienteering sessions aimed at family participation during Jan-Mar 2020. The sessions will be suitable for families with at least one child age 8 or older.
Apologies for the sheets not being updated for a while but our juniors have been so busy over the summer it's been almost impossible to keep track!
Please take a moment to look over the sheets for your child to make sure everything makes sense and let Pat know if anything needs added or amended: publicity 'at' marocscotland.org.uk
