Orienteering - Wed, Thurs, Sat & Sun!
There are lots of orienteering opportunities this week....
Wednesday 5th July
Club Night Week 5 is at Whirlowbrook Hall this week from 6.45 to 8.15pm. The visualisation theme continues and we will also be looking at simplifying the map. Building on the success of last week's Phone O and Talk O, we will be trying Draw O. There will also be a trail type orienteering course where the aim is to identify the correct flag from a choice of 3 in the control circle. On the physical side, Kim will be focusing on strength and conditioning.
All (age 8+) are welcome. If you haven't been before drop me an email....
Thursday 6th July
An evening Score (where you have to find as many controls as you can in a set time limit) event in the beautiful village of Hathersage. There are 3 courses available: under 11s, under 16s, and over 16s. Full details here.
If you are intending to come, organisers Mark and Bill would find it helpful if you completed their quick on-line entry form.
Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th July
Like last year, the Outdoor City's Cliffhanger Festival is in the city centre, with the streets and open spaces transformed into playgrounds for outdoor adventure, with free entry to all activities.
We will be based at the heart of the action on Devonshire Green, next to the British Bouldering Championships Climbing stage, where you can come an try out our FREE orienteering maze, with courses suitable for all ages and abilities.
Also on offer will be a FREE Urban Sprint course, that will take you into the intricate Springfield Estate, just across the road from Devonshire Green. Under 16s need to be accompanied by an adult due to road crossings.
Please come and pay us a visit anytime between 10am and 5pm both days.
Hope to see you this week.
