The club are taking a break till mid January, but there's plenty of action you can look forward to in the new year.
Our Spring term programme has one event every weekend from mid January up until late March.
A soggy JOG
What a wet and uninviting day! Even worse for Chris Philip the planner who spent the morning putting out controls in the pouring rain!
All courses visited the tower at the top of the hill so everyone had a chance to catch their breath and enjoy the views!
It was good to see people chatting at the end comparing their courses and discussing their route choices.
Our junior group meets at Thurlbear on Saturday, with a final opportunity to run locally in 2018 the following Sunday at Great Breach Wood (2 December).
Buckland Wood is not an easy venue to find so we were pleased that so many people came…see the photo of the car park! It was also a new area for JOG and most courses presented quite a challenge.
Junior Orienteering Group
Our Junior Orienteering Group (JOG) runs during term-times holding low-key weekly events aimed at juniors, families and all those looking to improve or to train.
Andrew Page planned the courses at Queens last Saturday, making good use of the complex buildings to encourage accurate map reading.
Brilliant photos from Jim again!

It was the first time we have had a “long leg” map memory for the Fox course and it proved quite challenging! As well as a lot of our regular JOGgers we welcomed three new families along to enjoy Chris Hasler’s courses.
