Tayside Orienteers


Monthly Training, 01st Jun

June monthly training - meet outside Bell's Sports Centre, Perth in time for a 6.30pm sharp start.


The Knock (evening event), 19th May

Local event - evening

Thanks to all who turned up on what looked as if it would be a very wet event but was surprisingly dry! We had 30 attending including children from local schools which definitely made it all worthwhile. Well done to everyone who set off - whether you got round or not!


Results and split times


Next date for your diary- Sunday 19 June

Balkello, near Dundee

TAY will run a local event at Balkello straight after the Jamie Stevenson Trophy has finished. We plan to make this a social event too so if the weather is good bring your mini BBQs. If the weather lets us down we can stick up the tents and have a picnic under canvas instead! More details to follow and keep your eye on the website.


Scottish Championships

Balmoral, 21 22 May

Members were in action in the individual and relay events at last weekend's Scottish Champs at Balmoral. Reports are coming in of suitably taxing courses for this major event but smiles all round! Well done to all who took part. Results here

Purple Thistle 2016

30 31 July Balmacara

An invitation from Tessa on behalf of the Scottish Elite Development Squad to come to the west coast for the Purple Thistle on the 30-31st July 2016. "True to the barebones concept, we’ve got some low fuss, top quality orienteering and hopefully a great atmosphere!"


Club members head north

SOL3 Glen Affric

Good luck to TAY members travelling north this weekend to compete in the third of the Scottish Orienteering League events at Glen Affric. Sadly this may be the last large scale event to be held in this stunning area due to planned felling. Current placings in the league table here


Lovely contours!

Coaching session focuses on contours

Sunday's coaching session at Dalguise (session #3 in a four-session block) was well-received. We focused on contours and included a novel tattie contour competition this week and finished with a "place and chase" exercise - which required very close attention to the map!
