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.

Our next training/coaching session:

Weds 18 Oct: School Wood, Farr.  Twilight night training in a small contained and safe wood adjacent to Farr Primary School.  Juniors 13 and under should be accompanied, unless agreed with organiser in advance.  Why train at night?  It makes you focus on map contact, attack points and to simplify the map.  Yellow course, orange course and TD4/5 training (compass and pacing work).  Head torches and high viz clothing. Starts 6pm.  Courses close at 6.50pm.

Cnoc a Bhreacaich - Sunday Oct 1st

[Posted 1st October 2017]

A day full of heavy rain showers did not dampen spirits as we clustered in the tent waiting for the dibbers to arrive ;-).  Some quick times posted, but the views through the cloud were elusive.  Please note that on the yellow course, the leg between controls 5 and 6 has been discounted due to a mapping error, so as not to disadvantage those who tried to use the non-existent gate. Apologies to those affected.  Thanks to the event team of James Laird, Kevin Holliday and Jim Finlayson and to all the helpers on the day.
