Please take a moment to read the two interviews from our impressive junior reps - Dominic and Catriona. Once you have read them I am sure that you will agree with me that these two determined young people have an exciting future in Orienteering in front of them.
Watch this space to see what more juniors have to offer in the future ...
A range of virtual orienteering courses in and around south Manchester are now available via a dedicated website thanks to the efforts of MDOC members Ian Watson, Peter Ross and Doug Edwards during lockdown. The courses use the latest version of the MapRun smartphone app that was trialled at last season's night street league, MapRunF.
Challenges include finding as many postboxes in your area as you can in an hour and navigating the streets of Altrincham on a map drawn 120 years ago.
Congratulations to all MDOC members who took part in the online T.O.R.U.S. Cup 2020 (TempO Online Races Ultimate Series), and in particular Ben Kyd who finished 7th overall after 8 rounds. MDOC finished in 5th place overall behind clubs from Italy, Slovakia, Germany and Finland.
Yesterday a video was launched which introduces Permanent Orienteering Courses (POCs): https://youtu.be/y4yfyUwkUxw
The 5-minute piece was compiled by Katherine Bett and Sarah Brown for British Orienteering and the Orienteering Foundation.
It includes a breakdown of the GMOA map of Boggart Hole Clough, with an explanation of what type of feature each colour represents.
Congratulations to Ben Kyd for winning round 7 of the international online TempO Cup “TORUS”. He left multiple World and European TempO champions and medallists in his wake. FootO specialists are also taking part, notably Severin Howald of the Swiss National team and Alessio Tenani from Italy.
