Lockdown 2020 update

Greetings orienteers. I have been very quiet on this blog as I have been putting my time into Twitter and Facebook. The season faded out with a wimper after a successful season of urban events. A number of club members met on Zoom for an AGM to discuss a new Constitution, a change of club name to reflect expansion into the southeast, and what type of events we can organise in Lockdown mode. I will post shortly about the local options for orienteering over the Summer.
The pictures reflect a number of recent events in 2020.
