Following the success of the camp in 2014, the 3 day training camp is on again. In 2015, Tobias Karlsmose Svarer, a 20 year old from Denmark, who is currently working as a coach, will be coming to the Darling Downs. The camp is again open to all orienteers who compete at Hard or Moderate level. Those just stepping up to Moderate level will be catered for.
The camp is being based at the Fred Rogers Recreational Camp at Storm King Dam, 10 mins south east of Stanthorpe. Live-in dormitory accommodation will be available for $50 per person, self-catering, with use of the kitchen and facilities. However, for those wanting other accommodation, there are plenty of other options available in and around Stanthorpe.
The first exercise, which is optional, will be a map walk at 10.30am on Saturday 24th January. The final exercise will be Monday morning, finishing up around lunch time.
The Granite Belt has some of our best maps so it will be a great opportunity to improve your skills.
Stanthorpe is generally cooler and less humid than the coastal areas and the adjacent Storm King Dam will be a good place to cool off after the training sessions.
Anyone wishing to register their interest in the camp can register online or email Felicity on firstname.lastname@example.org
Coaching and all maps will be available free for OQ members.
