This JOG was just one aspect of the first Training Weekend QO have organised.
Mark Maynard was the planner and his detailed knowledge of Huish Woods meant that he was able to use the very diverse areas to maximum advantage for each course.
Karen Lewis took Oliver and Annabelle to Bristol OK's coaching session at Ashton Court on Saturday (4 January) and it sounds like they all got a lot out of the morning.
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.
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.
