First Aid TrainingFree to SO Members

20150913 Ppr0516

As a club we would like to increase the coverage of first aid assistance at our events: both to increase the likelihood of a qualified first aider being present should the need arise at a small local event where the formal provision is just ‘first aid kit at download’; and also to make it easier to create a roster of club first aiders for level B/C events whilst still ensuring everyone gets their own run.

CompassSport Cup Final - Sun 22nd Oct

SO have once again qualified for the CSC final this year - which will take place in Devon in October. The club has decided not to take a coach this year since it too far to do comfortably in a day, and as it will be the start of half term week many are planning on going down for a long weekend (or more) to get in some cream teas. I have set up a poll for members to indicate their availability for the event (and an accompanying one being held on the Saturday). I need to enter our team by Oct 7th so please complete the form asap.

This year will include a more diverse selection of activities including headtorch runs in terrain, street orienteering events, night-time park orienteering as well as the traditional hunt-the-lampost type street activities. These activities are often planned just a few days in advance so keep an eye on the website each week.
