Would it be good for orienteers to meet up once a week to learn orienteering skills from coaches and talk about events with regular club orienteers?
Would you like to help out… and maybe improve your skills or fitness at the same time? Pauline Olivant and I (Catherine Hughes) have been working with local authorities and sports partnerships for over a year and we are very excited to announce the launch of the new venue, which will mean that orienteers living north of Nottingham will be able to meet up on a regular basis. However, we need your help!
Come And Try It events
We need volunteers to help us run the two events at Sutton Lawn on Saturday 14th and Berry Hill on Sunday 15th March. If you can help us putting out or taking in controls or supporting newcomers as they try orienteering for the first time, please email me with your preferred time of day between10.30 to 3.30pm. If you can only spare one hour – that will still be appreciated. There will be white, yellow and orange courses – and they’ re all FREE!
And, Hilary Palmer will be offering coaching to NOC members too!
Please pass on the details about these two events to your friends and colleagues who you think might be interested. Here’s a handy link to forward to friends:
New training venue @ West Notts college and nearby woodlands
Launch of new training venue takes place at West Notts College on Tuesday 17th March and will run every Tuesday evening, 6:30pm–8pm in term time. It would be great if local club members could join in this year to support new members. We’ll be organizing a mix of skills and physical training activities. So, there’s an opportunity to improve your own your fitness and skills too – perhaps come along just for a drink and a chat about your o-course at the weekend?
Please forward details about the venue to friends and colleagues. We are happy to supply posters, flyers or electronic copy for intranets etc.
