Other 10/05/2015 EVENT SAFETY WORKSHOP
We are running an Event Safety Workshop on Tuesday 2nd June, at Tom Mills’ house, 15 minutes outside Gloucester. The workshop will run from 7pm prompt, through to 10pm. The workshop is free, but places are limited. If you currently plan events, or fancy doing so, and have not yet attended one, you should make every effort to attend this workshop. For more information and to book a place, contact Hilary Nicholls, volunteer@ngoc.org.uk

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure activity in which competitors run, jog, or simply walk around a course using a map and sometimes a compass in order to navigate between control points. It provides both physical and mental challenges for all, from small children and families, to runners and adventure racers, and to older people looking for exercise and mental stimulation in the fresh air.

North Gloucestershire Orienteering Club holds 20-30 events each year in Cheltenham and Gloucester, the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. We provide courses for novices and experts, 10 year olds and 70 year olds, runners and walkers; you can choose a course as long and as navigationally challenging as you wish, and can be as competitive as you would like to be. Everyone is welcome to try the sport at one of our events, and help is always available for newcomers. You do not need to be a member, there is no need to pre-book, and the entry fees are modest.

We have over 100 members, and although the club is based in Gloucestershire, we also attract members from the fringes of neighbouring counties.

If you would like to read more about orienteering, visit our Getting Started page, or go to the British Orienteering website, which has a wealth of information about this exciting sport.

For more details about the club, contact our membership secretary, Simon Denman.
