Orienteering Events

Outdoor orienteering in the UK is suspended until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. See the British Orienteering announcement of 17 March.

To keep you entertained in the meantime, we have various virtual O activities for you - see below.

Virtual Orienteering to keep you sane during the lockdown
DEE COVID-19 O League
Graham Nilsen, Nick Campbell and Jane Mockford are bringing you a series of Virtual Orienteering courses that you can complete on your own or as a family to help pass the time until we can get back to proper orienteering.

Completed answer sheets to Jane Mockford () . If you wish, include your time and whether you took the traditional or helicopter approach.

If you want Jane to check your answers and include you in the virtual results, then get your answers in by the closing date shown for the event. You can of course go back to any of the previous virtual events and do them at your leisure.

This week's planner is Steve Ingleby and we are grateful to Jean Lochhead at East Pennine Orienteering Club for getting permission for us to use their club's map. Some DEEsiders went to this event so it will be interesting to see how well you get on......
12-17 May May 2020 Event 5 - Coventry Map
Question Sheet
We are heading for Coventry thanks to DEE's Jean Payne for planning and to mapper Bruce Bryant of Octavian Droobers for permission to use his map.
The event was just last year so, if you went, you may find it interesting to try a different course or you can see if you remember how you tackled the trickier controls.
In planning and controlling the course, Jean and I fell foul of the multiple versions of Street View again. Hence you will note that the questions sheets sometimes tell you which version you need to be on to find the answer.
Also please be aware that if the question says "near the control circle", the object may be some distance away.
