Netherclay JOG

It's that-a-way

Karen Lewis our planner, made the most of a small area for the 'Fox' training exercise by having map memory for the first half of the course and a compass and pacing exercise with a virtually blank map for the second.

Huish Woods JOG

Fyne Court JOG

Queues forming at the controls!

A Fyne start

Autumn 2019
