Orienteering Report, 9th December 2019
With a gathering of past and present members fit for a golden anniversary dinner, Border Liners celebrated their fiftieth anniversary in style recently. The evening’s entertainment included a lovely meal, memorabilia and maps from ‘the early days’ and a speech and toast from the first Chairman of the Club, Dave Gittus. Formed in November 1969, the pioneers of Border Liners organised their first event in May 1970 at Greystoke Forest using hand-drawn maps and pin-punch controls. To mark that first fixture, the club is planning more special events in 2020.
