Inverness Orienteering Club, or INVOC as we are better known, is the local orienteering club for the Inverness area and much of the rest of highland Scotland. If you are new to orienteering, our New to orienteering? page offers a starting point  to find out a bit more about the sport, and our About INVOC page tells you a little bit about the club.

INVOC AGM @ Littlemill event, Farr Hall - Sunday 19th March

Our AGM will be held at the Littlemill event including the presentation of awards recognising orienteering volunteering effort.  It will be a short affair as usual and catering should be available.

A healthy club is one in which postholders step down and new ones step up.  This year we have three postholders stepping down leaving vacant positions of President, Volunteer Coordinator and Team Captain.  Many thanks to James Laird, Iain Hope and Iain Shepherd for the volunteering work they have done for the club.  In addition we are proposing to create a new post Club Development Officer.  The intention of this new post is to take the pressure of the President ensuring the President can focus on chairing the club.

Hosting all our events and particularly the SOL at Glen Affric was a true example of our club spirit and it is through our volunteers that we are able to continue to enjoy the delights of these areas.

Brief descriptions of the role of each of the four posts are available here.  If you would like further information please contact: James This email address is being protected from spambots.
