The Odyssey: An Epic Romp from Troy to Ithaca, 21st March 2018 to 24th March 2018, 7:30 to 9:30 at East Hagbourne Village Hall, Main Road, East Hagbourne, Didcot (21.1 miles)
So, it's all about to happen.
On Wednesday 21st, Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th of March, The Hagbourne Amateurs (aka HAMS) will perform for your edification, education and entertainment, the Homeric epic that is The Odyssey.
(Not quite) the whole classic told with gusto, charm, pathos . . . and rather a lot of silliness, to be honest. Compete with wandering warriors, senior suitors, and a trinity of Old Men of the Sea (two of which aren't very old . . . or even men!)

Homer is not so much turning in his grave, as spinning at 5000 revs.

But a fun-filled frolic is guaranteed for all!

7:30pm start, but bar open from 6:45pm. Plenty of parking at the hall

Wed 21 Mar, Fri 23 Mar, Sat 24 Mar (please Note: NOT Thursday)

Chiltern Challenge: Great Hampden and Whiteleaf Orienteering Races, 15th April 2018 at Great Hampden and Whiteleaf, Princes Risborough (5.8 miles)
A race with no set route - you have to find your way around the course as fast as you can, using a special orienteering map of the fantastic Great Hampden and Whiteleaf beech woods to find a series of checkpoints. Each checkpoint might be on paths, or hidden behind vegetation, on buildings or by streams. Each one consists of a marker flag and timing unit, for you to register your electronic timing chip against (which we will lend to you). Be as competitive as you want - run, jog or just walk, there will be several courses, from 1k to 5k, for runners, with the shorter ones for families and juniors, although you can enter any course you wish.

Just turn up and enter on the day, any time between 10:00 and 11:30. Courses close at 13:00 and normally take 30 to 75 mins to complete. Entry fees are just ���£8 for adults and groups and ���£4 for solo juniors. Your entry fee includes a special waterproof map to keep as a souvenir, hire of an electronic timing chip and a print out of your result and splits at the finish. Organised by Thames Valley Orienteering Club.

The event is aimed at newcomers and anyone who wants to give this great outdoor sport a go - lots of help will be available.

Parking is in a firm flat field at the junction of Kop Hill and Peters Lane, west of Princes Risborough, HP27 0RP (not the Whiteleaf Cross car park).
