Opportunity for adults in Ballater and Braemar

Over the past year through the Community Orienteering and Protection of the Environment (COPE) project we have been able to give many youngsters in upper Deeside and Donside an opportunity to give orienteering a try. Now I would like to extend that opportunity to adults by offering some introductory sessions in Ballater and Braemar. We have some of the best orienteering terrain in the UK on our doorstep and I am able to help get you involved if you would like.

This summer Deeside will host the Scottish 6-Days for the 4th time, following previous events in 1983, 1993 and 2005. Main website for the event is here. Around 3,000 orienteers are expected to participate in the festival from all over Scotland, the rest of the UK, and beyond. However, the event is not just for expert seasoned orienteers and is open to all to participate. As well as competitive age-based classes there is a range of open colour-coded courses avilable for anyone to enter. And for the under 8s each day there will be a fun string course too. In case you are having difficulty understanding what is on offer and which class to enter, this document aims to demystify the whole event.
