Bathgate rd will again be the location for getting some strength into the legs and we will meet at the junction with Queensmere rd at 7pm. This is due West of Wimbledon Park and North from the Tennis Club. Please try and wear something bright or light coloured so that you stand out in the fading light.

Club Night Tuesday 22 Jan on Wimbledon Common

On Tuesday 22nd Jan I have set a few courses on the SW technical area of Wimbledon Common. It wil give Orienteers good practice taking bearing in low visability so will be quite hard in places. You never know, the snow might still be around for added enjoyment. Andy has secured the use of the Thames Hare & Hounds clubhouse for the night with a car park too. Its only a few hundred metres from Friars Avenue (SW) in the memorial clubhouse which is accessed from the Robinhood roundabout on the A3 from 18:30. Don’t forget to bring a compass and headtorch.
