What is Orienteering


EMOA Conference for Planners and Controllers

Saturday 4th October

All planners and controllers should make an attempt to attend this conference as it provides the opportunity to share experiences with others and keep up to date with changes in rules, guidelines and current practice.

The conference begins at 10.00 am (refreshments available from 9.30 am) until approximately 3.15 pm. It is being held at Rushcliffe Country Park, Ruddington, Nottinghamshire NG11 6JS. The conference is free and lunch/refreshments will be provided.

There is also a 5km Park Run in the park beginning at 9.00 am.

This year we are pleased to have two main sessions – the first a practical session led by Barry Elkington (OD), who wrote the very useful series of articles on planning courses at the various colours; the second on what we might learn from Roger Edwards’ (LEI) experience of planning day 3 at this year’s JK. There will also be opportunities to discuss issues with others and to bring along examples of good and bad course legs and courses to discuss.
