Dublin technical training experiment

It’s time for some technical training.
David Healy is running four technical training sessions on Wednesday evenings at Three Rock Wood, starting on 22nd October. Anyone who is a reasonably competent orienteer can come and will benefit: once the clocks go back next Sunday (26th) it should be good training for Night-O. Note **The later sessions have moved to Saturday mornings**

Wed 22nd October – Three Rock Wood.

Wed 29th October – Three Rock Wood.

Saturday 8thNovember – Three Rock Wood. 10 am

Saturday 15th November – Three Rock Wood. 10 am

Event Format – skills training (there will be different exercises each week)
Start time – 6:00pm Wednesdays, 10 am Saturdays

Grid ref – O 171 240
Car park: The same car park as the league event onSunday 19th October. Find location map here.

This training is free of charge. It is going to be provided by myself to get an idea of who in Dublin wants to train their skills and how often they’d be interested in training. If there is a good turnout I think there could be some more training arranged in the future, Saturday mornings would be a better time. Or is it? It depends on who comes out to this experiment and voices their opinion on what training they’d wish to receive. If you cannot make the Wednesday trainings but are very interested, please show the interest by getting in contact with me through email.
Please note that this is not an introduction to orienteering, beginners will not be catered for. It is for intermediates and advanced. However I would encourage beginners to come along anyway and I could explain some stuff to you. Since the training is free you might as well give it a shot. Please email me if you are at a beginner level so I can be prepared.
I’d like to thank 3ROC for the use of their map for this training experiment. Hopefully I’ll see some enthusiastic orienteers on Wednesday. Get out to the first one as the light is fading very quickly!!
