What we can offer
What opportunities does our club offer to help members improve and progress through organised training?
A series of themed training articles and videos. It is aimed at all from those attempting Orange courses to those who would be considered experts. Most of the articles were written by Richard Sansbury but we have borrowed from other resources on You Tube and other clubs' websites.
Good use was made of the Organiser and Safety Courses put on by QO and SWOA at the weekend, with seven club members gaining certificates and several more there to share their experiences.
Roger Craddock reports.
of Permanent courses
This page documents the latest known condition of each course! It relies on everyone's cooperation to ensure the courses stay runnable.
Most of these courses were developed in collaboration with other parties and hence the club does not have full control over the courses' upkeep.
Within the club's area
If you're a newcomer keen to improve, you’d like to keep your orienteering skills up to scratch or you're after a form of exercise that's both affordable and can be done at your own pace, why not head out to one of the Permanent Orienteering Courses available in the vicinity?
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.
We're running both an introductory organiser's course and an event safety course. The venue is in Taunton on Saturday 7 September. To register your interest, please contact Roger & Judy Craddock.
We need more attending to make these courses viable, so please don't hesitate in signing up!
Preparing for 2020/21?
Ten QO members who had had experience planning JOG courses were invited to two sessions about planning QOFL courses on areas selected by themselves from QO areas.
Chair Roger Craddock, who has invited planners to revisit their areas next year, reports from the session.
