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.

Visionteering - Monday 12th November

[posted Nov 14th]

Thank you Run4It for hosting. We had a brilliant time. Thank you to all the volunteers as well, especially Colin Salisbury for planning and organising, and Susan and Ronan Blackwood for handling the event timing.  Sorry about the control in the locked car park..... some things don't always go to plan.  Congratulations to the sock winners and also lucky number 69 who won the choice of a running jacket or petzl headtorch.
