Roseisle Forest offers a fabulous place to orienteer with intricate contour features and a good path network, all on a coastal dune covered in pine trees. In order to keep the forest healthy, Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) have asked participants be aware of biosecurity. They advise that tree diseases and pests are posing an increasing threat to our forests and can be spread very quickly from forest to forest on muddy tyres, boots or paws. To minimise the spread of tree diseases and pests, FLS have highlighted some simple ways that everyone can follow to help. Moravian supports these ways and we encourage all orienteers to be aware and follow them.

COVID-19 Guidance (Updated May 2022)
The SOA has issued the following updated COVID-19 event guidance with effect from March 2022 for Clubs to follow.
All competitors must not attend an orienteering event if they have symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 (even if they have received two doses of the vaccine and a booster) until they have completed their period of self-isolation.
Entry on the day (EOD) at events and activities is permitted but clubs should encourage physical distancing around registration or results displays even when outdoors.
Clubs are to avoid close packed (less than 1m separation) groups of people even when outdoors. Such close packing has been known to occur around both registration and results displays – it can also occur with helpers at registration and download.
- Indoor public spaces may be used for events and activities, but current face covering regulations must be followed and behaviours such as improved ventilation, provision of hand sanitiser, adapting layouts to encourage social distancing and encouraging the use of face masks to reduce spread should be adopted.
As a result, Moravian will continue to make hand sanitiser available for use by competitors and volunteers at the registration and download areas.
Competitors are asked not to form close (less than 1m separation) groups at events (be it outdoor or indoor), particularly around registration and download, and are encouraged to minimise contact with SI boxes, including Clear, Check and SI AIR test boxes, and the download equipment.
Where indoor/enclosed spaces are used which have restricted air circulation, Moravian will adapt layouts to maintain at least 1m segregation and encourage competitors to wear a mask.
