Clive King ,

Great start to 2017 for the King family

Clive King had a great start to the year - thumbs up to British Orienteering for excellent customer service when he renewed his British Orienteering family membership - seamless and hassle free (in great contrast to his next phone call to a well known Utility company who were singularly unhelpful!) Entry fees for orienteering events now great value for the family - the lovely glossy British Orienteering magazine to look forward to and discounts at lots of major outdoor retail...ers and activities - Membership renewal is easy via the MWOC website or British Orienteering - £15 for adults and £5.30 for juniors. When you first join MWOC you will also receive a free copy of Carol McNeil's excellent book giving an introduction to orienteering techniques. Please contact Gabriella if you havent had yours yet!
Congratulations to Rowen and Andrew King who are pictured here with their bronze and silver trophies from the MWOC 2016 League Orange course.

Penglais Woods ,

Penglais Woods Aberystwyth 2017

Come along and enjoy the delights of Penglais Woods, Aberystwyth for our first orienteering event of 2017 and the start of the club league. Penglais woods are on the north edge of Aberystwyth with great views over the town and out to sea. They are a mixture of open areas with intricate detail from old quarrying and mature broadleaved woodland with a great maze of paths. The courses planned are great fun with one  loop followed by a mini maze in the middle then turn over your map for the second loop all as part of your course!. The courses are a little shorter than usual with more controls. There are  a range of courses from shorter and easier to longer and more challenging. Kick off 2017 with the Penglais Challenge for your mind and body!

Mike Kay - MWOC Award for Achievement 2016,

MWOC Award for Achievement 2016

Congratulations to Mike Kay for receiving the MWOC Award for Achievement 2016 for all his hard work this year. Mike organised the MWOC day 4 at CROESO at Mynydd Llangynidr as part of the multi day orienteering event in SouthWales this year. Added organisational challenge was provided by the need for bussing to the arena and last minute track mat requirements. It was a great day of challenging orienteering with great feedback from competitors despite the weather conditions. Well done Mike and all those who helped with the day. Mike has also done a fantastic job as our Team Captain for the JK relay competitions organising the teams and the all important team names with great post race analysis. He organised another great day of orienteering at Foel Goch. Mike is also the Equipment officer for the club with a dedicated kit shed. Mike takes fantastic photographs and makes great publicity materials for the club too. A Big Thankyou to Mike !
