Our traditional shake-down-the-turkey post-Christmas training event will this year be in the rather tricky terrain of Mardley Heath.
There will be a training session in the morning, followed by a social in the Scout Hut from lunchtime onwards. Please bring a contribution to the Christmas buffet.
A flyer is also available.
|Location||Scout & Guide HQ, Canonsfield Road, Welwyn AL6 0QA , OS Grid Ref TL242179.|
|Terrain||Mardley Heath is a small, but complex woodland, mainly regenerating naturally following gravel extraction in the middle of the last century.|
|Parking||At the Scout & Guide HQ or with care on nearby lanes.|
|Exercises||There will be 3 or 4 exercises designed to develop particular orienteering skills – you can do one, or all, and repeat any that you want to.
Don’t forget your O kit.
The exercises will be suitable for M & W12 and upwards. There will be a map walk and exercises for younger participants.
You will have the chance to talk through your exercises with club coaches.
|Starts||Briefing for training will be at 10:15
Social from 12:30 onwards
|Fees||Free for members, £3 for guests.
It would be helpful to know that you’re thinking of coming before 14 December, to help with map printing.
|Social||Offers of either sweet or savoury items for the buffet to Frances, tea and coffee will be provided.
Quizzes and pub games – bring along any favourites.
|Officials||Keith & Susan Marsden and Frances Goldingay|
