Join us for some orienteering fun at Fota House and Gardens on Sunday February 23rd.
We’ll have a wayfarer’s course (suitable for beginners and family groups) that you can set off on at any time 11.00-12.30. For the more competitive and/or adventurous there will be a group start ‘score’ event which will set off at 12.00pm sharp – please come early register and warm up. The ‘score’ format means that you must get as many controls as possible within the allowed time. The group start will have everyone zig-zagging in all directions across the beautiful (and, thankfully, flat) gardens at Fota.
All proceeds from this fun event will be going to the Jack and Jill Foundation.
Following the event the Cork Orienteering Club AGM will take place in Guilders pub, Carrigtwohill. We would encourage all members to attend.
