Welcome to the web site of the Potteries Orienteering Club
(POTOC), for orienteers in or near North Staffordshire in England. This
site gives details of orienteering events which we
are organising, and results of past
events. There are also pages explaining what the club offers and describing the areas
where our events take place.

point to point using a map to choose the fastest route and a compass to help
with the navigation.
