Covid-19 Update and Guidance

In view of British Orienteering Federation and Welsh Government Guidance about restarting sport following the lockdown we have prepared two documents that are important for you to read. . Firstly we have prepared a guide to competing during restrictions and what you can expect. Guide here. Secondly we have prepared a Code of Behaviour that all competitors are expected to adhere to. Code of Behaviour. Here

Soon the club will be starting some events again!
To keep things easier for organisers, we will be making using of an mobile 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.
