Congratulations to HM Queen Elizabeth II on her Platinum Jubilee year.
ORIENTEERING THROUGH THE SEVEN DECADES
7 DECADES, OVER 7 DAYS!
It’s as true in Orienteering as in many sports: Once the Orienteering bug has bitten, it gets transmitted further from generation to generation. Many clubs in the UK have families with two or even three active generations as the backbone of the club.
Orienteering is unique in that you can have a Mother / Father competing at the same time with their children and their own parents!

In your club, how many families do you have with three successive generations as members?

Jennie Taylor Communications Officer, says: "It's quite impossible in just a few news items to portray adequately all aspects of British Orienteering Federation's and British Orienteering Activities over the last seven decades. There are so many people across the UK who have contributed so much to British Orienteering's growth and development."
What are your personal orienteering highlights from this decade (1990-1999)?
Look out for '#5: ORIENTEERING THROUGH THE SEVEN DECADES – 2000 - 2009' will be posted tomorrow (Tuesday 7 June) at 13:00.
