Saturday Series orienteering dates for 2016-17

Dates have been announced for the 2016–17 Saturday Series of orienteering competitions organised by Southern Navigators. Esher Scouts orienteering club won the 2015–16 Saturday Series, and so we hope to have another great turnout in the coming season.

The events take place on Saturday mornings, and scouts from the Esher District usually meet at Hinchley Wood scout hut at 9am to travel down together. Return is usually at 12:30–1pm, but depends on how far away the event is.
