Wessex Summer League and SEOUL

A weekend of contrasting orienteering events: the informal Wessex Region Summer League on Saturday in blistering sunshine around a sleepily quiet area near Verwood of mixed parkland and urban areas; the Level C Southern England Orienteering Urban League event on Sunday in drab drizzle around a traffic-busy Frimley which included railway crossings and dual carriage-ways. Apart from orienteering, the only other thing they had in common was I managed to smack my head on tree branches on both days!

RVCP Local Event and Picnic

A reminder that SOC's next event is due to take place in two weeks' time on Saturday 20 July at Royal Victoria Country Park. Full details of the event can be found on the SOC website. We'd like to encourage everyone to bring a picnic, along with something to share with others, and stay after their run, compare routes, and just generally socialise.

Event Safety Workshop - Date Announced


Anyone who is acting as a planner, organiser, controller at an event, or running a coaching session for a club (unless they are a licenced coach) needs to have attended an event safety workshop which is required in order for them to be covered by the BOF insurance. SCOA is planning to hold another workshop during the next few months. If you are keen to attend the next workshop, which will be held on Saturday 7th September, close to Reading and will last about four hours, do let me know. Ian Moran (ian_moran(at)btinternet.com).
