A reminder from the organisers. "The 2014 Caddihoe Chase (Sept 13/14) also incorporates the SW Championships and the VHI. The event is a major one in the SWOA calendar, and this year gives club veterans a chance to compete against the top homeland international runners. Entry is via Fabian 4, and more information can be found on the Caddihoe website - www.ngocweb.com/caddihoe. "
29 Sept Gore Heath Dorset Schools League & Informal Flyer NB This event replaces the SWOA Galoppen originally scheduled for this date. Storm damage over last winter followed by recent & continuing forestry harvesting operations sadly mean that the area of forest on Gore Heath currently available for orienteering is not large enough to support a major event. The WIM Galoppen will be rescheduled to later in the 2014-15 season.

At the September 2004 WIM Committee meeting, it was recorded in the minutes that the club had adopted the BOF Child Protection Policy. Wimborne Orienteers is intent that children and vulnerable adults will find orienteering a safe environment in which to have fun, learn and develop. The Club will do this by adopting and promoting the British Orienteering Federation Policy on Protecting Young and Vulnerable People.
