Fyne Court JOG

Queues forming at the controls!

A Fyne start

The first JOG of the Spring Term doubled up as a 'Come and Try It', which also had the effect of doubling up the attendance.

By 2pm the area was thronging with families - we hadn’t expected such a massive response!

JOG

Over The Bridge, Thurlbear Woods

Autumn 2019

This was one of the toughest JOG programmes imaginable, held mostly on woods and open hillside, with no visits to school campuses.

We introduced a coaching element into this series and welcomed contributions to assessing juniors' skill levels as they worked towards badges.

Ash Priors JOG

Mulled wine supplied by Father Christmas

With all this booze being consumed we'll get mistaken for our distant cousins, hashers...

Finishers at Ash Priors were treated to some mulled wine (and it's not even December), while the planner apparently spilled a glass of red over the map! Judy Craddock reports...

What's this?

Sue Made JOG's wonderful mascot

New arrival at JOG

The Toomers and Macphersons presented QO with a new mascot, made by Sue.

Elven in appearance, he could almost have emerged from the woods. He's already invested in some QO merchandise too- check out the detail on Sue's stitchwork.

Staple Hill JOG

Taking on the misty forest

Rain has been falling on a Super Saturated Staplehill for about a week and as you will see from the photos the whole area was shrouded in mist BUT many JOGgers turned up to have a run, well done all of you, it made it worth-while!

Thurlbear JOG

Ollie And Sarah finishing, Thurlbear

As you can see from the photos, there was plenty of water and mud but Karen had put a lot of thought into the planning and everyone came back satisfied that they had been challenged....especially those on the Fox.

Tips for improvement

Tips for all those who have reached the level of Orange (or Badger course at JOG) i.e.

  • a junior improver

Some of those doing harder courses may often still need to master these techniques though.

Neroche JOG

Tom And Ollie Reviewing The Run

Strong gusts of wind and rain swept across the SW throughout the night before and the morning of the Castle Neroche JOG.

A glance at the photos will tell you that we got drenched but still had a great time.
