Workshop Invitations

Following the first NI Orienteering workshop “Beat the Sprint Planner’ the programme continues with 2 further workshops to which all are invited:

Tue 27 Nov. 7.00 – 9.30 pm. Beat the Forest Planner. Led by the highly experienced planners and coaches Wilbert Hollinger (LVO) and Raymond Finlay (FERMO) this workshop will explore the tools and options available to Middle Distance and Long Distance planners in forest and open mountain terrain and then at the tools, tips and techniques that competitors can use to beat the planner! As before, while the session will be introduced and directed by Wilbert and Raymond it will aim to meet the needs of those attending. So whether you are a novice participant, an experienced orienteer or simply curious about how orienteering planners set about creating the orienteering challenge, there is something here for you.

Tue 11 Dec. 7.00 – 10.00 pm. Safety in Remote Areas. This 3 hour module has been created by British Orienteering and is primarily aimed at coaches who may wish to conduct coaching sessions in remote areas that their coaching qualifications does not cover. It is also of great value to potential organisers of events that are to take place on the better and more remote terrain. Whether these are training or competitive events, this workshop will help understanding of the specific dangers orienteering faces and the means to mitigate the associated risk. The workshop will be led by Helen and Philip Baxter; all are welcome to attend.

It is hoped that both workshops will be held in the Dungannon area. Details will be confirmed.

If you would like to attend either or both workshops please let Philip know via
