Upcoming Events & Younger Junior Training

These are the events for the period ending Wednesday 23 November 2016.

There is training for younger juniors at Hellfire next Sunday, see note from John Riordan:

We have had a very positive response to our training proposal for Sunday morning and will be sending final details tomorrow to those who have registered their interest. Accordingly, if there are any “last minute” takers (all young juniors are welcome, this is about giving them a chance to learn and have some fun) please send a quick note to John on

Our plan is to meet at 0945 in the Hellfire car park and to walk across the road to Massy’s Estate then for 1000. We will have three games planned … where we are / Line Orienteering / ‘Vampire’ Orienteering … with learning and a bit of fun in mind!

Games will be short and will focus on the fun and social aspects of the sport as well as dealing with basic map-reading skills such as map setting and self-locating.  Games will finish at 1120 and the participants can be collected from the finish point in Massy’s. All are welcome and parents may of course remain in close proximity. No cost.

Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday at 0945
