Orienteering using new technology!
To keep things easier for organisers, we will, for some events, be using of a mobile phone app called 'Usynligo' (Norwegian for 'Invisible O')
This app allows us to stage events using minimal equipment and all you need to run is your mobile phone and a printed map.

The club organises a Summer and Winter League each year, each comprising a range of Event Types. In the Summer, the Events are normally held on Wednesday evenings in Gower, Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot and the surrounding area. In the Winter more events are held on the weekend due to the shorter days.
Our Summer League of 10-14 events runs from May to August. 10 normal colour coded events with Yellow, Orange, Light Green, and Green courses. Plus 4 sprint events on a monthly basis with Senior and Junior courses.
Our Winter League of 12 events runs from October to Mid-March. Up to 6 normal colour coded events with Yellow, Orange, Long Orange, Green, and Blue Courses; 4 Night Events with Orange and Green courses; and 3 Urban/Sprint Events with Senior and Junior courses.
Although these are all leagues, newcomers are welcome to come to any event... and they are handicapped so the winners cannot be predicted. Details of all leagues and competitions are here.
