JOG Autumn 2021
OK, so our plans have gone a bit out of the window because Forestry England has raised its fees and now treats juniors as full adults in their pricing structure. This happening so late in the permissions process has meant that we have had to make some difficult decisions.
We fundamentally believe that JOG events should be run as cheaply as possibly, and have always subsidised them from income from bigger events. We cannot achieve that under the new charging regime so have done our best to restructure the already-planned series to enable it to go ahead.
Some events will have physical controls as usual. Some will have to be conducted using GPS controls as we did during COVID restrictions. And some might have some courses one and some the other.
These are subject to permissions.

The season started with a new area, mapped and course-set by one of our younger members. There was a good turnout, boosted further by a couple of minibuses of Scouts.
In addition to the normal four courses, we had a maze by the registration area. Everyone who gave it a go had lots of fun.
There was even an awesome playground right next to registration!
