Compass Sport Trophy 15 March

The draw has taken place for the CS trophy and we will be competing at Coopers Hill and Cranham near Gloucester.

We have a pretty strong team . Thank you to those who have signed up already. 

I have expressed our initial interest so we will definitely be taking part. However if there are any other SOC orienteers who would also like to run for the club it is not too late. Please contact me on

if you would like to sign up.

I need to send my completed spreadsheet to Andy Mc Gregor by 25th February. So please,for those interested in running, if you have not already done so, could you give me the following info:

  1. Forename and surname
  2. BOF number
  3. Age class
  4. SIAC or SI ? And the number please.

For those of you who are not sure if you will be fit/ available by 25th Feb, I am allowed to make additions and subtractions to our team up until 9th March. 

Best Wishes

Wet and windy MapRun

A hardy crew braved the wind and rain for last night's MapRun around the streets of Eastleigh. Everyone was glad of the chance to dry out in the pub afterwards. Many thanks to Christine for planning. If you missed it, it's not too late to give it a go! Just download the free MapRun app (available on Android and iOS), select the event from UK > Southampton > Eastleigh, and head to the start. If you want to print yourself a map, the PDF is available here. Watch this space for details of next month's MapRun.

Level C Officials required URGENTLY

We have registered a level C event for 29th March on the interesting Highland Water area of The New Forest and urgently require sufficiently qualified officials to allow this event to go ahead.

We also need a level C Planner to assist at Sunset and Beyond on 28th March as Colin cannot be present on the day, having already done the bulk of the task.

If you have the necessary Organising or Planning experience please consider volunteering.
