Presidential Address

If you have been feeling at a loss and not sure of what's happening with O.U.O.C. then you're no more uncertain than your committee. Hopefully the info here should help sort things out. Things to emphasise are the Cambridge Sprint-O and the infamous Roving Meal. Both of these you need to sign down for quite quickly, it will be well worth the effort if you do. The Sprint-O features an Alc-O (Orienteering with alcohol at the controls not just a punch) and a superb social. The Roving Meal is the social to beat all socials - a meal with fourteen courses in fourteen places - altogether more food and drink than you can handle.

Finally. Congratulations to David Curry & Ben White for winning the Freshers courses I & II respectively and especially to June Hedges for being the first woman on both courses.

If you haven't been orienteering yet don't worry, it's not too late. All the events that we go to have courses for beginners. Some entry deadlines for badge courses have gone but if you want a late entry just let Alistair know. Remember that you don't need a pre-entry for colour coded courses at badge events.

That's about it, hope that term is going well for you all. Thanks to everyone who came to the meal on Thursday, hope you enjoyed it.

love to you all

Some of you may have a voucher which enables you to have two games for the price of one. If anyone is interested email me on or sign down at club lunch. Also remember the roving meal on Thursday 4th week. There will be an OCCO dinner which all freshers and most others are warmly invited to, provisionally on Thursday of Sixth week.
