Breaking BADNews...

Serena and Tony Ludford participated in the "II International Event Diputación de Palencia" in the mountains of northern Spain. It's a five day event held in August every five years with excellent terrain, good contour detail and lots of boulders and crags. Every evening there is an "antiofficial" event; sprint, micro-O, maze or mobile phone-O.
Tony is holding an ORCA, which was given to all prize-winners. He says "It proves I had a whale of a time".
Serena had a 4th and a 7th place in a big field of competitors

Preliminary details now available - subject to revision.

About BADO

BADO is a relatively small club. Nevertheless, we aim to run several traditional Sunday events, and summer evening events each year

Club Meetings

We hold monthly meetings at the Basingstoke Sports & Social Club - normally on the second Wednesday of each month at 8:00pm.
However the next meeting is September 10th as there is no August meeting. All members are welcome to attend.

The BADlands

The circles indicate our mapped areas. There are permanent courses at The Vyne (free maps available at the entry kiosk) and Charlton Lakes (free maps at the café).
