There will be a range of exercises available suitable for all, including training in identifying orienteering features (for beginners), how to estimate distance, compass work, the benefits of map memory and how to relocate when ‘misplaced’. At the end of the training period we aim to run a 30 min score event to finish the day with a bit of competition. Please support this event and come and practise your skills. Please let Heather Brown () know if you are coming so we can make sure we have enough maps.
