MDOC Annual Social Evening 2019

New Date: 12th January 2019

New Venue: Offerton Community Centre, Mallowdale Road, Offerton, Stockport, SK2 5NX

Just when, for most people, the party season would be drawing to a close, MDOC members are invited to the Annual Social Evening on the 12th January 2019. The new date has been arranged so as not to clash with other more major orienteering events and club members will need to go a long way to find another orienteering event to challenge it that weekend.

29th Nov 18

Enjoy good food, good company and a range of orienteering challenges in which novices, seniors and elites compete on even terrain. 

  • ‘Team Timperley’ will be staging a ‘Multi-day O Event’ for you to enjoy from the comfort of your dining table – no pre-event training or warm-up needed. Injuries, inexperience or inconsistent performance during the last twelve months will be no impediment to success. This is your chance to gain a podium place regardless of your orienteering ability
  • Back by popular demand, the ‘Bring a Bake’ competition. This year you are invited to bring any bake of your choice and give it any orienteering-related title: perhaps some individual rock cakes – ‘A Boulder Field’; your best recipe for cheese straws – ‘The Famous MDOC Yellow Control Stakes’… show off your baking skills and get inventive with your naming
  • Hear the wisdom of two top overseas orienteers
  • Awards for orienteering achievement over the last year and prizes for many more competitions held on the evening

Offerton Community Centre is located in a residential area North of the A6. Free parking at venue adjacent to assembly. Google map.
