Ramsbottom Street League

SELOC are putting on the next SROC Night Street League event in Ramsbottom on Wednesday 6th February. Based at the Hare and Hounds pub this is a 60 or 75 minute score event. Start any time between 6.30pm and 7.30pm and navigate to as many of the control locations marked on the supplied map as you can. Different controls have varying weighted scores attached and penalty deductions apply for every minute taken to return to the pub after your specified time period has elapsed. Why not stay in the pub after you have run to compare routes whilst sampling some of the award winning beers and food available. Lights and high visibility clothing advisable (for runnning, not necessarily for beer drinking!).

Snow & ice impacts Bolton club night

It has been a frustrating start to the new year with the two Monday night Bolton club night sessions being cancelled due to snow and ice. Similarly, the Ramsbottom night street event has been postponed twice and is now rescheduled for Wednesday 6th February. However, the current cold spell can't continue forever and we have an exciting programme of events for the next few weeks at Bolton club night - see below.  We are also fairly confident that the morning and evening events at Amberswood, Wigan will go ahead this weekend as the area is very low level and is accessed directly from the urban road network.

Wicked Theatre Trip

There are still tickets available for the Wicked Theatre trip on Wednesday 23rd October 2013. Tickets are £37.50 and you can reserve your tickets by contacting Lisa Kidd at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Membership 2013

Note that SELOC membership is now due for 2013. This is perhaps easiest achieved on-line on the BOF website. The membership system has been dramatically simplified this year so there is only national junior (£4) and national senior (£20) memberships available. Some of the benefits of joining the club are:
1. Free Compass Sport Cup entry
2. Regular SELOC and BOF newsletters
3. Free National relay race entries
4. BOF discounts at races outside our immediate area
5. Required to compete in national competitions
6. Show your support for the sport of orienteering at the local and national level
