Orienteering Masterclass Session 3
A LOC Zoom presentation
Sat 27 Feb 2021
The fourth session arranged by Carol McNeill and Martin Bagness to be presented on Zoom at 17.30 on the 27th February, the link will be provided to those who sign up.
The topic is Simple Map / Compass System part 1: The Compass - how it can work together with the map as part of a system which can be relied on on any leg in any kind of terrain.
Jenny and Oli Johnson, both ex-internationals, will be zooming in from Sheffield to join us.
Following on from the previous sessions, where it became clear that our guest speakers had no magic formula - they were using simple techniques, but using them well, all the time, and with confidence. The two skills - compass and map-reading - have to work together in a system, so there will be quite a lot of overlap between the two sessions.
Meanwhile have a look at the long leg on the attached Holme Fell map, instructions are on the map. Martin will summarise the options at the beginning of session 4.
If you would like to sign up for these then email Carol (LOC Lead Coach) to book a place. We might have to limit numbers so don’t leave it to the last minute.
