SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Orienteering opportunities!

We have a number of ideas to keep you all fit and interested in orienteering during the current lack of competitive events. 

Turfing challenge match against PFO! We have been challenged to a competition using the gps game app called Turf by our neighbouring club PFO. Just in case you haven’t yet heard of or tried Turf here is a brief description.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) An opportunity for local lockdown orienteering with iOrienteering

SROC planner Andy Quickfall is introducing a new (to us) form of virtual orienteering that does not rely on gps or data signals. Please read this note from Andy. Remember to follow current Covid guidelines regarding exercising locally if wishing to have a go.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League part 2 further update

In the light of the latest instructions from the Government regarding Covid I feel there is no alternative but to cancel the final 5 events of the 2020-21 season. It is apparent that the first three events cannot go ahead as they will be within the minimum time period for the current restrictions. If the restrictions are eased at the end of the period indicated there will be insufficient time to then plan and organise event 4. With only the possibility of the final event going ahead it seems very unfair to ask the organiser to plan an event that could be attended by relatively few people, judging by the quite small numbers feeling able to go to the last 3 events in Part 1.

My thanks go to the Organisers/Planners who put on the first five events; your efforts are greatly appreciated.

We all hope that we can return to street leaguing in the 2021-22 season.

Happy New Year to you all and stay safe.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League - part 2

In the light of the Tier 4 restrictions it is intended that the next event, at Plungington, will be deregistered as an SROC event. It will not therefore be an official orienteering event but rather be available during that fortnight to enable personal exercise within a Night Street environment. Unfortunately this means it will not be for the Guild Trophy but at the end of the fortnight results will be published as a way to encourage participation.

Further to this it must be pointed out that anyone taking a map and running is fully responsible for following Government guidelines and is not covered by BOF insurance, it is therefore no different to any training run you may do. Bob Nash
