Request for Help with Study into Misting of Glasses while Orienteering

Folks – I received this and was asked to post to our website. As a glasses / misting sufferer I think this is a worthwhile study. If you follow the link to take part be aware that the blue link is only to additional information. The Study itself is accessed via the Next button.

Dear North West Orienteering Club,

I am currently studying at Loughborough University and am undertaking my Part C personal project whereby I am aiming to design a device that reduces/ eliminated misting that occurs on orienteers glasses when they compete.

I was wondering if you were able to distribute my survey about misting problems in orienteering to members of your club so that I can gain a better insight into the problem?

Here is a link to the survey:

Best Regards,

Leinster Orienteering Championships Cancelled

“Due to the level 5 restrictions, the 2020 Leinster Orienteering Championships cannot go ahead as planned on the 29th of November. So LOC 2020 will now become LOC 2021!  We have set April 11th 2021 as the new(est) date for the championships at Carnawaddy, all things going well. Some participants may find that they will need to change class next year, but we will deal with that nearer to the time. All entries will stand for next year, and participants who have received refunds and who wish to re-enter, please email


NI Orienteering Championships Postponed

FERMO have taken the difficult decision to postpone the NIOC and reschedule for early 2021 – date to be confirmed later. If you wish to keep your entry you don’t have to do anything. If you wish to receive a refund less booking fee you can do this through SiEntries.  Thanks to all who entered and apologies for the inconvenience this causes.
