Tuesday training - everyone is welcome at our low-key local orienteering every week.
August is a month of 2 halves - starting with sessions on 2nd and 9th based at Nethybridge Primary School. For folk who came along to the taster sessions, this is a great opportunity to develop your skills with Attack Points on 2nd and getting your direction right when cutting corners on 9th. There will also be good exercises for more experienced folk, everyone is welcome.
For 16th and 23rd we will be in Inshriach - meet in the car park near Feshiebridge - turn off the B970 on the road that's signposted to the gliding club, then almost immediately turn left into the forest car park. Arrangements for 30th are to be confirmed. For all these evenings there will be activities suitable for people who have attended the Nethybridge development sessions, and for seasoned orienteers.
Technical and quite physical training suitable for adults and older juniors. We welcome all current and potential members.
For the 2nd and 9th, maps will be supplied for everyone, so there will be a £3 charge per person, per session, for everyone.
For 16th and 23rd we will issue a PDF for you to print your own map at no charge. If you require one to be printed for you, we ask for a suitable donation please.
Registration and start times
The normal start time is 6:30; please arrive in time for introductions and a short briefing.
Over the summer we often notice quite of a lot of midges and ticks. Please bring your own repellent (midge spray on leggings also deters ticks) and check yourself for ticks afterwards, they're nasty blighters. Also please be sensible in extreme heat and be aware of the possibility of thunder storms.
IMPORTANT COVID-RELATED INFORMATION
Please do not come if you or anyone in your household feel unwell or have any Covid-19 symptoms (well documented elsewhere). Also, do not attend if you or anyone in your household have been told to isolate or quarantine. People in higher risk categories should be aware that meeting a group of people does increase the possibility of them becoming infected. Of course we hope that everyone will be vaccinated, but would remind you that even when you've had both shots and your booster, you should still keep your distance and follow the proper hygiene measures.
The fact that orienteering is an outdoor sport where we disperse across the area is very much in our favour, and we know the social aspect is important to the club but we urge you to keep your distance, even outdoors.
Please bring your own "comfort kit" - midge repellent, tick remover, sticking plasters and anything else that you might occasionally borrow from others. First aid will be provided only in extreme circumstances.
Out of respect for your clubmates, please inform Hilary Q if you become ill or test positive for Covid-19 within a few days of attending a club session, or if you are told you had been in contact with an infected person and could have passed the virus on within a timescale that includes a club session. Of course we will respect your anonymity, but this gives others the option to make more informed choice. If your contact details have changed in the past few months, please let me know.
