Some of the PFO crew were back out again this morning just hours after last night's Street O for the Come and Try It event in Thompson Park as part of the FYW events we have run this week.

Today, those that came along got to try what it would be like at an orienteering event, with electronic timing, control boxes and an orienteering map!

We were absolutely thrilled that almost 50 of you turned up to give it a go and with such enthusiasm too! The age ranges were from 3-50+ with so many families coming and racing against each other!

Going off the big smiles from everybody at the end, hopefully your experience of orienteering will make you want to try some more! As explained on the reverse of your map there is information to try out some more types of orienteering, Permanent Courses, Mobile Phone (Virtual) courses and of course our PFO events we have coming up. There are always events to suit all abilities and everybody is more than welcome to attend. We always post the events on our webpage and across all our social media so you can keep up to date with what is on!

The prize draw winners will be announced in the next few days!

Lastly, thankyou to Mick, Helen, Ginny and Kay from the club for volunteering today and the wonderful support from Alexis at Beat the Street Burnley!
