Wessex Night League

That time has come when the evenings get dark earlier, so why not dust off your headtorch and get involved in some night orienteering?
The Wessex Night League is a fun series of 20 events throughout the winter and across the "Wessex region", see the flyer attached.
The events are a standard one hour score event with bonuses if you get all the controls! The terrain is very variable and includes forest, urban and park landscapes sometimes in isolation or sometimes in a combination of all 3.
There are 3 SOC events on the list so any offers of help to myself or Terry Sankey would be appreciated.
These events are sociable and quite often run from pubs so drinking and eating opportunities are available post event, and sharing transport to them is a really good idea, Rob Finch committee member is interested in doing that so please contact him, robertfinch615(at)googlemail.com.

MapRun Training and Social

Location

Valley Park, Chandler's Ford

Date

Tue 29th Oct 2019

Time

19:00

This is a free training/social event for club members. It will take the form of a 45 minute score around the streets of Valley Park with a mass start at 7pm. To keep things low key, we'll be using maps from Open Orienteering Map and there will be no controls out but those with a smartphone can use the free MapRun app (available on Android and iOS) which will notify them when they're in the right location. Get a good workout trying to collect all the controls, practice making route choice decisions on the run or just pair up with someone else for a sociable run: the choice is yours! Afterwards, we'll retire to the Cleveland Bay. You must register for the event in advance using this form. Registered participants will receive further details nearer the event.

SOC Annual Dinner

Bramshaw, New Forest

Date

Sat 30th Nov 2019

Time

18:30 for 19:00

Members should have received the attached invitation to the club's Annual Dinner directly from Barbara. If not, you may wish to check she has your correct email address! If it sometimes feels like all you've managed to say to your fellow clubmates all year is a breathless greeting as you passed them in the forest, here's the chance to socialise in more civilised surroundings. Anyone who attended last year will attest that the golf club lays on an excellent spread. Book your place now with Barbara!
