Description:Woodland with path network. We will be putting on coaching prior to the event on Saturday, from about 10.15 to 11.25. All those taking part in the coaching will then be able to take part in the score event taking place from the same car park. The exercises will cover basic skills, such as understanding the map, contours and compass work. It will be suitable for everyone from complete beginners to those looking to gain confidence visiting controls away from paths. Should be fun. Meet in the same car park as the local event at 10.15. No charge for the coaching, but there is a fee for the local event.
