Its that time of year (three months ago) where we need to sort out CNOC membership.
A new 2012 membership form has being linked here, on the right under Club Documents and on the right under Club Links. So there are three places for you to click. No excuses.
Benefits of being a CNOC member include:
-The best looking O gear on the Irish circuit.
-You are eligible to become Irish Champion
-You are eligible to race internationally as you become a member of the IOA.
-You are eligible to be selected for the JHI, SHI and/or VHI (I have yet to find someone that has raced both the JHI and VHI - but, ya never know!)
-Relay entires paid
-The chance to help out a CNOC events
-Free tea/coffee/pint at the AGM where you might be one of the lucky ones to get elected!
-It makes orienteering on the Curragh easier*
-Access to the CNOC map archive. A place to upload your GPS'd maps too.
-You also have the added benefit of when you rock up to an event, people think, "dam it, CNOC have shown up. We won't stand a chance now".
-A scientific study conducted in Sweden also show that being a member of CNOC aids in relocation*
So, get your membership in sooner rather than later.
