Local Events in 2018


Results for the final SprINTelope, at Astley Ainslie on Wednesday 8 August, are now available here.

Results for the Local Event at Almondell on Saturday 4 August are now available at this link.

Comments regarding the Results of SprINTelope 16 on Wednesday 1 August at Pathhead:

Oleg’s shrubbery caused significant navigational and numerical difficulties last night for many people, each of whom should have known better.  To save multiple DSQs, we have decided instead to apply a time penalty of one minute for each missed micro-O control.  However, to show that we're nice people, in one instance, we've granted a small time bonus for one competitor who interrupted his run to alert us that one control wasn't beeping.

The modified Results are available here.

Results for SprINTelope 14, on Wednesday 18 July at Buckstone, are here.


A link to the list of events for the remainder of the year can be found on our Events page.  Please note, however, that the event planned for Saturday 6 October at Mortonhall has unfortunately had to be cancelled, because of a clash of date with a major event.


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 19 June, is as follows:

  • Samuel Bartlett:  Racing Challenge Silver Award 4*

Other awards previously announced in 2018 have been the following:

on 29 April:

  • Colin Inverarity:   Racing Challenge Bronze Award 4*, Navigation Challenge 4*


European Competitions in 2018

From time to time, I receive invitations to participate in various events in Europe.  Rather than re-circulate these invites to the entire Club via e-mail, I thought it best to advertise them here on the website.  So here goes:
