We’re holding a practice event at Thursley on Sunday 12th December to try out the iOrienteering app which is available on Android and Apple phones. The map will be available when you arrive and you can take time to plan your route if you wish and discuss route choices with the organisers or other riders. The house in the picture is no longer visible from CP 102 or 203 since it burned down. News, updates and discussion about the event can be posted on the SLOW Facebook event or in the SLOW MBO Facebook Group.
