Local level event
Explanation of Event levels
Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Activities are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.
Sunday was a rather busy day as the 'Orienteering' began an hour before the main field arrived. I was able to set out 10 controls on Saturday pm & the rest on Sunday am.
Back in September 2019 a joint venture with NLC Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme began with basic 'O' Training for a number of Staff and with the help of several in the hour between 10am > 11am basic coaching - including a model event (that was why there was an SI Box 36) out there was undertaken by 21 students / 8 Staff.
The Students & several Staff then joined in our SCORE Event.
This year - due to flooding last week I had to avoid a few areas just in case primarily south of the railway & out west. Feedback would be welcome on 'The Control Card' & 'The Distance Indicators' - did anyone use them?
Having pleasant weather & an indoor area are a couple of bonuses. Thanks for supporting this Event & a really big thank-you to TEAM STAG - Hua, Lynn, Ceana, Helen, Gerry, Colin, Maz, Andy, Thomas, Mark, Peter & Rudi & to Robin for the computer back up ; Donald & Ian for their input and to the NLC Staff at Drumpellier CP.
STAG Score 4+ on 9th February is an Greenhead Moss with the parking in Newmains thus a 1km walk to the Start in the Memorial Park. I am still contemplating the location for the Finish.
Thanks again & have a nice week,
