The new season kicks off (bleeps off?) with some fantastic dune action taking place on the first weekend in September at the annual Caddihoe. The 10 or so QO members who've entered have a sprint race and long and middle distance races to look forward to.
A list of forthcoming weekends, each of which gives a decent number of events for the travel time involved.
Fabian 4 is the usual method of entering these events online- see links below - as well as seeing who else is going.

Permanent courses (POCs)
These offer a good and cheap way to keep in practice, especially during quieter times of the year.
Our course information has been updated on both this website and that of BOF's. Where possible, we attach downloadable map packs. Before visiting the POC, please read our Condition Report, which documents any known issues about the various courses e.g. any missing control stakes. It is important that users of the courses continue to report any problems to us so we can make those maintaining the courses aware.
