Coaching Day Sunday 12th June

You are invited to a coaching day on Sunday 12th June 2005 probably on Wisley Common (subject to land permission) just off the A3 near to the M25 junction. Time 10am to 2pm. Details of car park to follow when land permission confirmed. Terrain is pine forest with a scattering of rhododendron thickets. Technical exercises from white for young juniors, through yellow/orange for beginners and juniors to light green and beyond to stretch developing orienteers will be available.

For those of you who have not been before, you can go round with somebody or talk to the coaching team afterwards. We generally do 2 or 3 exercises in the morning followed by a break for lunch (please bring your own) and socialising. We generally finish with a fun competition so you can practice your skills. Please let Heather Walton know if you will be coming by Friday 3rd June so that I can organise some more experienced orienteers to guide you. Let me know if there are any techniques you particularly want to practice. Any offers from volunteers to help also gratefully received.

Land permission has now been confirmed for the coaching day on Wisley Common. The car park is at grid reference TQ 079583. Coming south down the A3 you need to leave the A3 as if to join the M25 then rejoin the A3 again going south and turn left off the slip road. The car park is not the first one but the second one further down Old Lane. See the link below.

Please let Heather Walton know in advance if you are coming.
