Navigation Skills Course (2017) - a success!

Today 13 club runners came along to Common Barn Farm & the Goyt Valley for a 'Navigation Skills' session led by Phil Cheek (fell section). The group tackled everything with gusto - the maps, the terminology, the compass, the cake, the sandwiches, the tea/coffee and the practical session.

In the afternoon the group headed off to the Goyt Valley and were joined by more experienced navigators to tackle a course with 9 controls - everybody worked hard, navigated well and completed the course.

A big 'Thank You' to all the organisers and helpers.
