News from the North: History of OrienteeringĀ (1998)

At the recent AGM of NI Orienteering, Chairman David Blair referred to a History of Orienteering document that had been in the possession of the late Noel Bogle.

This had been compiled in 1988 by Jason Kane, then the Chairman of Fermanagh Orienteers. The project is available atĀ About Us>History of Orienteering 1998. Long standing members are likely to find their names, or even maiden names, whilst newer members will discover how the sport was run before the days of OCAD maps and online results.
