Ok folks, it's a volunteer call. Don't be shy! Here are LVO's next 4 events. Have a look online and sign up for a role (or two) of your choice.
Meelmore & Hillsborough still need 2 main officials each so please do step forward. We're run entirely by volunteers so let's make a success of our fixtures list.
Richard McC tells me he's been working away building a volunteer list for Woodburn so the list isn't as empty as it seems!

If you're still on a high after the Armagh Festival and clamouring for more Orienteering there is a potential double header this weekend if you fancy it. Not only do we have NICS1 at Castle Saunderson on the border, Fingal Orienteers are putting on a Leinster League event at Deer Park Forest in Virginia, Co. Cavan on Sunday. I've never been there myself but they say its a small intricate bit of woodland on the shore of Lough Ramor. Sounds Ok.
So if you can't make Saturday's event or if you fancy a weekend of brown courses the choice is yours.

Called in to Kilwee on the way home tonight. Bit disappointed at the state of the MOO after the weekend. I'll give the organisers the benefit of the doubt and assume someone intended to call later in the week to sort it out. Hopefully my little bit helps :-)

Remember the guys trying to organise the next event. Especially as we are trying to encourage fresh volunteers to take on the Organiser role. It's daunting enough when everything is neat and tidy.

Hi guys, I was just wondering if anyone would be able to give me a lift to Castle Saunderson on Saturday. I can meet somewhere around hillsborough/sprucefield and even Lisburn. If anyone is able to that would be brilliant. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

So sadly the Armagh festival of orienteering has come to an end, but I'd like to say a large thank you to everyone who helped put on the events especially the planners, controllers, organisers and mappers and all the other volunteers and runners. I think we can all say that it was a fantastic weekend and hopefully we can have a few more festivals like these in the future as they help bring our small orienteering community together. ...

We want to hear from women about orienteering. Whether you are currently taking part or haven't been for a run in a few years we want your views. This initial survey is part of a wider piece of research to explore the reasons why women's' time in orienteering is typically shorter than men's.

WEE 14 - Crawfordsburn Country Park

Course information: Long 4km Short 2km

All juniors must use bridges to cross the river. Due to construction work on the path to the waterfall this area will be out-of-bounds on both sides of the river and will be marked with tape. Courses have been planned to avoid this area.

There is quite a lot of undergrowth and nettles in places. Runners are advised to wear leg protection.

If you have not pre-entered, registration will be at the MOO (large white trailer) from 6.15 p.m. with first starts from 6.30 p.m. Last starts 7.30 p.m.and courses close at 8.00 p.m. sharp due to falling light. Control descriptions will be available at Registration. If you are a newcomer, please make yourself known and there will be someone who will be only too happy to offer some tuition and advice. If you pre-enter you will be able to go straight to the “priority” start lane and avoid queues. You will also be entered in the weekly prize draw.

***Remember as this is our last WEE of 2016 there will also be a BBQ and prizegiving after the event***

And we have prizes! Check out these lovely fleeces! And then check out each month's league to see if your eyes are indeed on the prize. Remember August isn't over yet............

As an added bonus, t-shirts will be ordered for everyone who has completed (or officiated at) 9 or more WEEs this year. If you're on #8, well there's an added incentive to head out to Crawfordsburn - as well as the free hot dogs of course.

Post-WEE barbecue at Crawfordsburn this week - yes it's the 2016 WEE Finale already. With the nights drawing in, you might want to start as early as you can - with the added bonus that you'll be near the start of the hot dog queue. I know some of us get light-headed at the thought of leaving the Belfast Parks, and Crawfordsburn is a little further afield. Not too much though and it is a beautiful spot. Come along for some fine orienteering, tasty food and of course some post-race banter too :)
There's an (as-yet unconfirmed) rumour of a prizegiving too............
