clubs in the Highlands.
Our area covers terrain both north and south of the Great Glen and as far afield as
Sutherland and Speyside.
We have strong links with our neighbouring clubs in Badenoch & Strathspey and along the

people of all ages to participate in the sport.
Throughout the season the Club organises coaching events suitable for all.

INVOC Club League
The 2014 INVOC League got up and running at the MOR
Level C at Altyre and Phorp on Sunday 9th February.
check out the initial league tables!
The League will include INVOC/BASOC/MOR Level C events and possibly some others, so for the first half of the year
the remaining events look like being our events at Anagach on 23rd March and Craig Leach on 8th June.
The MOR Culbin event on 11th May may well be 'juniors only' due to WOC embargo limitations, so might be a
counter for the junior leagues - watch out for confirmation.
INVOC Facebook page
We now have an 'official' club Facebook page,
Inverness Orienteering Club.
If you're a Facebooker and have not already visited the page and 'liked' us, please quickly head over and do this as
we are needing more INVOC members.
It is a great way to keep up to date with club news, and interesting stuff from other orienteering and related sources.
Junior coaching, Sunday 9th March at Uath Lochans, Kincraig.
This is a BASOC event, and we will do some coaching first, and then do Hilary's courses.
Courses on offer will be yellow, orange, green and blue, so plenty for everyone - more info
on the BASOC website. Starts for their event are 11 - 11:30, so we will need to be there by 10:00.
Let Sue know if you are able to be there (coaching"at"invoc.org.uk), so that we know who to expect on the day.
Friends are welcome to come along and give it a go!
