Interløpers presents "Intrepid 2018"

Saturday 3rd November – Urban SOUL – Eliburn, Livingston.

We will be based in Deans Community High School, with car-parking and toilet facilities available.  We also expect the School café to be open.  The co-located Start/Finish are a 1.2km jog/walk warm-up away along traffic-free paths.  There is *very* limited parking available for junior or older competitors who prefer to drive.  (maps available at Registration)

Starts will be from 12:30->14:00.  The usual SOUL courses will be available, in particular juniors who have not reached their sixteenth birthday cannot compete on the senior courses without adult accompaniment.  There will be no String course.  As the Start/Finish is remote, we will allocate start times only as a guide for competitors.  Clothing can be left at competitors' own responsibility.  Download will be back at Registration: please do remember to download.

Sunday 4th November – SoSOL and ESOA Champs, Dechmont Law, Livingston.

Assembly/Registration will be on the north side of the M8 in Deans Industrial Estate (NOT Deans High School) with parking on estate roads.  Toilets and the String course will be very close by; Start will be a five-minute walk via the footbridge over the motorway and then footpaths, including one minor road crossing.  The Finish will be passed on the way to the Start.

Dechmont Law comprises a mixture of parkland, together with pockets of well-contoured woodland.  There is a good path network throughout the area.  There are no road crossings on any course.  A full range of SoSOL courses will be available: White through to Brown.  Please see separate information concerning ESOA Championship eligibility.  Starts will be from 11:00->13:00, and no start times will be allocated.

BOF Incentive Scheme

Since 2012, BOF have run an Incentive Scheme, designed to encourage members to achieve certain standards in Colour Coded events.  These standards are in two categories, Navigation and Racing Challenges, and achievements are recognised by means of a star-rating system, ranging from 1 to 5.  (Details are at https://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/incentives.)

Since late last year, notifications of success in these Challenges have been sent out by e-mail, both to the recipients and to the Club Secretary.  I thought it would be good to publish details of those members recognised in this way.  The latest award, announced on 7 October, is:

  • Matthew Ross:  Racing Challenge Bronze Award 5*, Navigation Challenge 5*

on 28 September:

  • Fiona Eades:  Racing Challenge Gold Award 4*

and on 10 September:

  • Geoff Martin;  Racing Challenge Gold Award 5*, Navigation Challenge 5*
