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.
Training within QO
What opportunities does our club offer to help members improve and progress through organised training?
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.

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.
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?

Chair Roger Craddock, who has invited planners to revisit their areas next year, reports from the session.
Focussing on the big features on the map which are easy to see on the ground helps you go faster. Less time is then spent studying irrelevant detail on the map. This skill takes a bit of practice.
