Soton Sports Centre event

Why not make your New Year's resolution to attend SOC's first event of 2022?! It takes place at Southampton Outdoor Sports Centre on Saturday 8th January. Duncan has planned some great courses from Yellow up to Green that make the most of the area for beginners and experienced orienteers alike. Entries are now open on RaceSignup along with full details. Map numbers will go to the printers on 3rd January so make sure you register by then to guarantee your entry. As always, if you subsequently have to withdraw due to Covid then you'll get a refund.

Offers of help are always appreciated, particularly with hanging/collecting controls or assisting beginners. Just drop me an soc [at] (email) before you enter to receive the code for discounted entry.

URGENT!! Organiser(s) Required

SOC are putting on a Regional level event at Acres Down on 6th February and are lacking an Organising team. Experience of organising, at least at Local level, is required and, for newcomers at this level it is hoped that experience gained from this event will provide the necessary expertise to officiate at further Regional events in future. Help and advice will be available if required.

Time is short. Please respond to Fixtures Secretary
