Mapping practical session

Andy explaining what to map

Six members from EckO enjoyed a very informative mapping session late last month. Did you know that not every feature is marked on an orienteering map? An orienteering map is very much the mappers interpretation of what is seen and one mapper's map could be very different to another mapper's map! Ahhh...that could explain a lot of my orienteering difficulties - it has to the mapper's fault.

Success !

Our sad and very sodden equipment store

We have been successful in our application to Live Argyll Community Sports Hub Return to Sports Grant. This grant will enable us to replace our dilapidated equipment store at Taynuilt. We are hoping to build our new shed close to Taynuilt Sports Pavilion. This will allow us to come together as a club and hold regular orienteering activities.

Lots of fun and exciting times ahead.

We would like to offer our grateful thanks to Live Argyll Community Sports Hub for their generous contribution.
