A great turn out of SOC orienteers, family and friends were out at Wimborne's Boxing Day Canter yesterday. We had fun orienteering at Moors Valley Country Park and tried to find the bonus moving controls of Santa and the Fairies!
The second order of SOC O tops have arrived. Everyone who ordered an O top should have received an email from me informing you that they had arrived. The club also has a small amount of stock for sale so if you didn't order and would like a club shirt, then let me know or find me at an event. I plan on handing out the O tops at the King's Garn Gutter event on Sunday and at the Christmas social. The O tops are £22.50 for short sleeves or £27.00 for long.
