Organisers Una & John take shelter ar St Catherines

Pretty grim conditions for our inaugural event at St Catherine’s Park in Lucan last Sunday – fine putting out the controls, but rain, sleet and snow for the competition itself, so well done to everone who came along, particularly the beavers, cubs, scouts and guides. Thanks to Ger Butler, course planner, and to all the 3ROC stalwarts who came and helped. We had about 150 people on the day, most of them newcomers. The results are on the “Results” page of this website.

This weekend, CNOC continue the Leinster League series at Stradbally, Co. Laois on Sunday. See details here.

Reminder #1: Entries for the Jan Kjellstrom Orienteering Festival in the English Lake District at Easter close on Friday 6th March. The JK is one of the biggest competitions in the UK, attracting about 3000 competitors. See details here.

Our great new Siven 3ROC O-tops have arrived. If you have ordered one, or want to try one on, contact Lindie or e-mail 3rockoc@gmail.com.

Fitness training continues at Belfield on Monday and Thursday evenings.

Reminder #2: Our next event is the Leinster League at the Pine Forest on March 29th. Several of our regular helpers will be away so please volunteer to help on the day. More details later.

That’s all for now …
