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

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!"
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
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!
