Inverness Orienteering Club, or INVOC as we are better known, is the local orienteering club for the Inverness area and much of the rest of highland Scotland. 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.

 

2015 was an exciting time for orienteering in the Highlands, with the World Championships and 6 Day Event in the summer, and 2016 is sure to serve up lots more great events, challenge and fun. If you are not yet a member join us now to get involved, and enjoy reduced entry rates to all our events plus loads of other benefits. Membership costs just £17 for adults, £4 for juniors.

Scottish Inter-Areas relays and Individual:

Forming part of the Moray Mix weekend on Oct 29/30th at Culbin.  It is made up of a Relay on the Saturday and points for the Individual results at the SOL on Sunday. Both of these are being held at Culbin Forest.

The Junior Inter Areas Relay has been running for over 20 years, and is held between East, West and North areas.  It comprises a relay event and an individual event.  The North Area,  which is made up of MAROC, GRAMP, INVOC, MOR and BASOC won the competition in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

It is a great opportunity for Juniors to experience a relay and a SOL event and also to socialise with juniors from other clubs and get to know them. It is one of the favourite junior weekends.  This year all the juniors from all over Scotland are staying in Inverness at the Youth Hostel and we would like INVOC juniors to do so too.  Please give let Catherine Todd know if you will be staying at the Youth Hostel juniors 'at' invocmail.org.uk by the end of August.


Scottish 6 Days 2017 – your country (and INVOC) needs YOU!

INVOC is the lead club for Day 2 at next year’s Royal Deeside 6 Day event and are looking for two Planners and two Organisers for this level B event. The Controller is Robert Hickling of GRAMP and SOLWAY will supply an Assistant Controller. Ideally we will have at least the two Planners arranged by the end of July 2016 so they can visit the area (Balfour Woods south of Aboyne) to view it with the vegetation/bracken at the same stage of growth as next year’s event. If you are willing to volunteer for one of these roles or want more information please contact Iain Shepherd, our Volunteer Co-ordinator on This email address is being protected from spambots.

12th June - Gallowhill

Gallowhill is a tough little area: challenging for planning the junior courses and challenging for the organiser with the parking & assembly.  A lot of preparation went into it.  Many thanks to the event team of Jon Shepherd & Andy McCann (organisers), Graeme Guy (planner) and Jake Hanson (SI) and all volunteers on the day.  

Results, winsplits and RouteGadget.
