One of our most successful orienteers, Nathan Fernandes (who was previously a member of QO, now BOK) ran a workshop for ten orienteers interested in providing wheelchair accessible courses.

Senior group training
It was the club's first training weekend! So how did the senior coaching go? Sarah Pascall and Tom Hasler each give their accounts.
Plus coaching team member Richard Sansbury describes the exercises the coaches devised and got their group to try out.
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.
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.
