JOG planners course

Ollie and Sheila tackling Steve's exercises

Steve Robertson provided a two-evening course for 10 new planners for JOG activities using the excellent facilities at Taunton School.

Steve (assisted by Roger and Judy Craddock) outlined the guidelines for the Hare, Squirrel, Badger courses and discussed various training options for the Fox challenges for QO members.

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.

  • an adult beginner
  • 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.

Henlade Hill JOG

Emma running up Henlade Hill

Ray and Sue Toomer certainly made the most of Henlade Hill small venue though it is, with a variety of interesting courses.

We had another great turn out which was surprising as the weather forecast was not grand.

Netherclay JOG

Bearing up? The bearings exercise being discussed

One of the courses had some senior orienteers well and truly 'foxed' this week...for planner Jenny West presented them with a blank map with bearings but very little else to go on!

A great exercise for anyone who's ever tried it, even in an area you think you know well.
