This Way Up - a Novel by Lindsay Wood

The O-Store is glad to have been introduced to another book about orienteering.  This Way Up is a 2010 novel by author Lindsay Wood, of New Zealand, about a high school student who needs more exercise and chooses orienteering, since it is just a "stroll in the park".  Imagine what he learns about our favourite sports when he actually starts orienteering! 

Silva Compasses, Silva flags and punches at the O-Store

The O-Store if very happy to now be able to carry Silva compasses, Silva flags and Silva punches.  The 30 cm flags include a reflective diagonal stripe - great for all round use, but especially great for night orienteering. Flags can be purchased individually or in sets of 10.  The O-Store now carries the Race Jet and the Race S Jet compass. The difference between the two is in the face of the compass housing.  The Race Jet has nothing on the housing except a direction line.  Race S Jet (S for Spectra) has Silva's coloured sections in a band around the outside edge of the housing.  For both compasses, the housing does not turn.  These compasses come with a very nice compass case to keep it protected between orienteerng sessions.

Aluminum Posts are back!

A few years ago we were selling aluminum posts for flags and SI controls.   We now have these available to purchase again.  They are the same price as the fibreglass posts.  You choose your preference.
