Club nights are for all members whether old hands, just starting out or members of other clubs. We'll even be happy to welcome along potential club members for a session or two before signing you up. We hope you will join us for a range of different activities led by club members. The calendar of events runs on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month (April - September). We will be having a go at a format called Street-O for the first few dates.
Watch out for updates on the website about future sessions.
Street-O is urban orienteering in a “score” format. Each competitor starts individually and is given a special map showing the local road and path network. A number of control sites are marked on the map, each of which is allocated a certain number of points. The challenge is to score the highest number of points from visiting these sites within the time limit of 45 minutes. But beware, if you come back late you will be punished by being docked points!
To add to the fun we have decided to turn the series into a mini-league with points accumulated after each Street-O event of the series! More details to follow.
Starts - from 7.00pm to 7.30pm
Remember - Bring a watch and a pen/pencil.
Afterwards we will be heading over to a local pub for refreshment and to discuss routes and mistakes!
This week's club night will be a Street-O around Stony.
Meet : at Hawkins Close car park off London Road MK11 1LT
Time : starts from 7pm
It would be useful to know who will be coming along - email Ann to let us know you are coming and we will reserve you a map!
