Orienteering Intervarsity Training Weekend 2010

Hi everyone!

In a few weeks time DUO will be hosting the College's Training Weekendon 20/21st November. The committee have already started getting preparations underway and hopefully it's all set up to be a memorable one!

Everyone will meet on Bull Island, in the Southern Carpark in time for training to begin at 12 noon, on Saturday 20th. A full day's training on these technical sanddunes will be planned from beginner to advanced. Please bring lunch with you as it will be late before we can head into town for food.

We'll all head out to a local pub (likely to be MacTurcaills) for a night of banterous fun with students from all around the country. The next day everyone will travel out to compete in the nearbyLeinster League event at the Vale of Clara. Here we can put our newly-learned skills to the test. This is a great opportunity to socialise with fellow student orienteers from around the country, so please do come along. It'll be a bitta craic. This once in a year-time opportunity costs just €10 each to cover expenses, so please reply if you're interested in coming along as we need to gage numbers in order to prepare maps.

Put the date in your diary!
