The May issue of Aire Affairs, containing members' stories of lockdown and an interview with award winning mapper Tony Thornley, is now available here on the website.
British Orienteering has issued updated guidance following the slight relaxations on outdoor exercise. The document reflects how Orienteering will be able to move forward as rules surrounding Lockdown are altered to hopefully allow us to do some Virtual/Socially Distant Orienteering. Their current views are in this document Bo Resumption Update Statement 14Th May 2020 V1 8
As a club we are currently looking at plans to be able to come forward with activities/events in line with this and Government Guidance in the near future.

Chichester Trophy for BOC 2019 Map
Many Congratulations to Tony Thornley who has won the Chichester Trophy which is awarded annually by British Orienteering for the best map by an amateur mapper. The judges recognised Tony's top quality map of Kilnsey and Arncliffe used for BOC 2019 scoring it highest overall on specification, cartography and presentation. The prestigious award should have been made at the BO AGM at the JK but obviously that had to be postponed. Tony's comments on receiving the award are on the BO website British Orienteering News Chichester Trophy 2019
A fuller story will be included in the forthcoming Aire Affairs.
