British Orienteering has published updated guidance about coronavirus and orienteering, requiring that all orienteering events be cancelled at this time. SYO has therefore followed this advice and cancelled all events within the next few months.

Four intrepid SYO juniors travelled to Venice (via Australia) this weekend for the second in a series of international Minecraft orienteering competitions

The organisers had built a magnificent 'world' complete with St Mark's Square, canals, and bridges. Competitors kitted themselves out with compasses and dibbers and ran challenging courses against people from all round the world.

Robbie finished 3rd in the M/W14 class with Anna 6th and Sam 10th, but the standout performance was from Jack (with help from Ella and Richard) who finished in 18th despite being one of youngest competitors.

If you’re into Minecraft you can run the course and see if you can beat the experts by joining at IP address  (Minecraft Java only).
