The Army Sport Control Board will soon be 100 years old and to mark the occasion it will be publishing a commemorative book to celebrate a century of sport in the Army.
The book cover all sports, with a small section on orienteering, which will comprise a combination of text and photographs.
Given the 1 page constraint, the article will consist of a nutshell summary of the sport’s role and history in the Army, how the club has progressed since it was founded and how many participants today.
Entries should be in no later than 8th March.
Dear Planners, Controllers and Organisers,
Firstly I would like to say thank you for your continued support to the MLS; without you it would not be possible for the MLS to cater for around 6000 entries each year during the winter season alone. A truly impressive statistic!
There is an opportunity for a Unit to gain either 600 or 400 MLS league points by just supplying manpower for access control and car parking at Longmoor on the 24th Jan 18. Bonus, if you have a controller she/he can have 100 indicidual points! If you are intereseted contact Phill Batts on either firstname.lastname@example.org or 07733047634
The Army gets a mention on the BOF site again wrt the recent Night Champs;
