Event Safety Workshop

I will be running another Event Safety Workshop next Thursday, 22nd February, at The Family Tree, Whatstandwell from 3.00 – 5.15. pm. This might be more convenient for Juniors and I already have a couple coming. Anyone wanting a refresher will also be welcomed and some have already done it a couple of times.

Remember, if you want to act as an event official – organiser, planner or controller – at any orienteering event you need to have done the workshop. It’s also useful for Team Leaders and any others who might be interested.

If you would like to come, please let me know by Wednesday evening so I can do enough copies of handouts.

Dovedale Dipper

Would anyone be willing to tag/marshal the Dovedale Dipper which on the first Sunday of August, the 5th . Anyone helping would get a free run. Before the event It would involve setting out markers (red and white tape) along the route a day or two before the race and reporting back anything that is not right. It would also be good to have sweeps on the day, The job can be done in sections with transport to and from Hartington Village Hall. There is also a free hot meal afterwards in Hartington Village Hall. The map is on the Dovedale Dipper website.
If you are interested please could you contact: or ring 07785 574 846
