Socials are organised on a regular basis

At the end of the year, in May week, the club always holds an orienteering social in a novel format. The exact rules depend on the organiser, but the race can involve running, punting along the river, swimming, pub-O, micro-O, or pretty much any kind of O you can think of!
Yes, orienteers can get fancy at least one night a year. The annual dinner is when we dress up smart, eat some decent cuisine and celebrate the past year. It's traditional for the captain to give out silly prizes to all of the committee present. It often takes place in a private function room, away from the student crowds of college hall and really is the highlight of the orienteering year, where we might club together somewhere afterwards...ssh,cindies.
The individual competition at the Varsity Match is normally followed by a social in the evening, and the all important Boat race. The format of the social varies from year to year. In 2017 there was a black-tie dinner in Fontainebleau, but in other years things have been a bit more informal, but no less fun. 2019 involved a pub buffet and live band on the Isle of Wight.
