The Current Situation

Orienteering during Lockdown 2.0

As of writing this on the morning of 7 November, the government is allowing people to travel a short distance to do outdoor exercise. In fact, outdoor exercise is actively encouraged as long as you do it solo, with members of your household/support bubble, or as two individuals from different households.

British Orienteering has confirmed that in line with this, clubs can still put on events as long as they do not involve needing to meet up, are virtual (e.g. MapRun), and are open for at least 7 days (to reduce risk of crowding).

Hallowe'en Orienteering

Planning

Instead of trick or treating this evening, the Shaws and MacAlisters went night orienteering. It was a score course with a difference - each control site had a bag of goodies (the harder the control to find, the better the selection of chocolates and sweets). The first pair to reach each control got to collect the bag!
