Getting Back to 'O'

Fingers crossed our Summer Series will be able to take place - &, prior to that, Simon & Clive are holding a virtual training session on Monday 8th March. It will be via Zoom, open to all present & past members of SuffOC, & will feature a mix of ideas to help you prepare, including fitness, virtual 'O' & technical skills. The session will be suitable for both experienced & newer members - it'll be lovely to see people again, even though we can't meet in the forest or park at the moment.

So - put the event on your calendar:

Monday 8th March, 19.30

SuffOC Zoom meeting

& let Simon know that you're planning to attend so that he can send you an invitation to join the meeting.

The Current Situation

From 5th January all organised orienteering events, leagues, coaching etc have been suspended - you can read the full statement from British Orienteering here.

Individuals are encouraged to continue to exercise locally & you probably have your own preferred routes close to home. If you happen to live near one of our Virtual Courses you may like to try it to practise your "O" skills - there's no limit to the number of times you can repeat any of the courses so trying to improve your route choices, along with your fitness level, could take you higher up the MapRun leaderboard!

Our Next Events:

Simon Peck Summer Series 2021

We're hoping to hold 3 events as usual in this series, starting from 9th May. The proposed venues are Clare Country Park, Orwell Country Park & the Royal Hospital School. There'll be further details in due course, once we've established the necessary permissions & the planning has advanced.

 Nowton & Hardwick

5th September 2021

We originally pencilled in this event for February 7th, but, due to the current lockdown, it had to be postponed. The event will include both our Nowton Park & the Hardwick Heath maps as the areas are fairly close, linked by footpaths & established residential estates. The course planning is well underway & we've now been able to reschedule it to early September. We'll post further details once they've been firmed up - but you can be confident that we'll be following all the British Orienteering C-19 guidelines.
