COACH grand opening
Schoolchildren try maze
11 May saw the official opening of the COACH building in French Weir Park, Taunton. COACH stands for Centre for Outdoor Activity and Community Hub. QO have been using the COACH building for the base for their Club Night Training sessions for a few months now.
We will be using it this term for some planners' and mappers' courses and will be holding the Club Championships there on Saturday 24 June - BE THERE!
Our Club Night training is continuing this term but is based at various venues around Taunton...
On this page are some photos of children from the 12 schools invited to the opening celebrations.

We challenged 112 pupils from local Primary Schools to a sprint and pin-punching exercise around French Weir Park.
It was won by Ryan Reed from Parkfield School in a time of 2min 31s, followed by Matthew Templeton and Chas Wingfield of Cotford St Luke School.
The four maze courses required navigation around different routes in a grid using electronic punching to check the children’s route and timing.
The winners were Matilda Fox from Wiveliscombe School (2min 17s for course A), Henry Nicholas from Creech St Michael School (2min 17s for course B), Sundari Scarborough from Crowcombe & Stogumber School (2min 11s for course C), and Tilly Hooper from Creech St Michael School (2min 10s for course D).
