3ROC News – 19th January 2015

The night-O season is in full swing with Setanta’s “Dublin by Night” event on Saturday 24th at Ballinascorney, above Bohernabreena. The planned UCDO event at Deerpark last Saturday failed to materialise due to access problems but UCD are confident that the event can go ahead on a new date before too long. Details of the Ballinascorney event are here.

A record number of runners at our Phoenix Park night event on January 10th meant that we ran out of Short course maps: if we had to recycle yours, please ask at this Saturday’s event and you can have a new map with our thanks, or e-mail 3rockoc@gmail.com and we’ll send you one electronically.

CNOC are starting off the daytime orienteering season at Donadea, near Clane, Co. Kildare, on Sunday 25th. It’s a lovely forest for a run or walk and there’s often a coffee shop open on site (also sells hot chocolate). There are three courses from 2.5 to 7.6 km. See details here.

The next night events are at Bushy Park, Terenure  on January 31st and Glendoo on the Featherbeds  on February 7th.

DUO are having a 40th Anniversary weekend on February 7th/8th, with a relay on the Curragh on Saturday, a food and drinks function in Trinity College that night and a Leinster League event at Djouce Woods on Sunday. Everyone is invited! See more details here.

Club AGM: The 2015 AGM will be on Friday 13th February at Ballinteer St John’s GAA club on Grange Road, near Lidl. Time: 8 pm.  We hope to see all members there!
