A warm welcome
Youngsters Olivia Goodland and Emily Dempsey join us. Both are from the Taunton area and both have taken part in JOG a couple of times now.
All new members are allocated to an event team (1, 2 or 3). This provides them with a great way to get involved and meet their fellow orienteers straight away, if they so wish.
Signing up for 2019 are the following people, all who have joined us for the first time:
Two more families from Taunton joined:
The Knott-Jones family: Nick, Katie-Jane, Emily and Ben. Starting out at our last Come and Try It event at Vivary Park in October, they tackled the Squirrel course at JOG several times last term.
The Anstee family: James, Jemima and Harvey. They debuted on the Squirrel course at the Queens College JOG last term before venturing into the less salubrious surroundings of Buckland Wood... and thankfully it didn't put them off!
Taking advantage of a free membership period by joining in advance for 2019 were the following:
The Johnsons of Taunton, Graham, Fiona, Joe, Max and Ned. Impressively, both Graham and Joe have tried out the Blue course. Clearly ones to watch!
Paul Roberts of North Cadbury nr Yeovil
Mike Laver of Stogursey nr Bridgwater, returning to the sport and the sharp pair of eyes that spotted our recent missing dibber!
The Hunts of Wokingham (& Somerset) who've the run Green course at QOFLs
At very different stages in their orienteering journey....
The Chavasses of Minehead, lately of Deeside OC of Cheshire and very strong orienteers
The Brodies of Taunton, new to JOG
