Next event and coaching

Next event is on Sunday 5th August on the TOPEC map using the course that Jason set last year but we had to cancel because of bad weather and access issues.
Start from Meeting of Waters carpark.

Jacqui will have some coaching tips printed out for those interested, which we can discuss and then practice out on the course. Come along early so you have time to absorb the information and then go out on the course. I'll be there from 11am
  • The Basics (distance, pace, magnetic north, safety bearing, course closure and how to use a compass to run on a bearing).
  • All about Handrails
More coaching tips to follow at other events

Barrett Results 1 July 2018

Well, hope you have dried out now.  Good event, but mighty dark in the forest - I had to keep dashing out to the open when I was picking up controls!!
Win splits are HERE. Thanks for your patience at the beginning while we wrangled the new system into line.

ROGAINE COACHING Saturday 7th July

Who’s it for: We are specifically aiming at schools teams planning on doing the G2G, next years TSSSA rogaine championships or the National Secondary schools Rogaine Championships. Adult teams are welcome to enrol too. It is not for individuals, so a team of 2 to 4 is required. We will be limiting numbers so that we can supply one coach per team.

 Description: This coaching is aimed at rogaine teams wanting to develop their skills in planning and executing a rogaine successfully. There will be an emphasis on team dynamics, managing an evolving  plan, effective pace setting, finishing strategies and general point maximisation. Whilst there will be navigation involved, this will not primarily be a navigation training exercise.

 Pre-Entry. We are unable to do this on a register on the day basis, so you will need to pre-enter no later than the Thursday before the event = Thursday 5th July to nick@sandersoncollins.co.nz
Detail: The training will be Sat Jul 7th from 1pm to 3pm at Lake Mangamahoe main entrance. (Not the MTB area). We will cancel if the weather is bad and reschedule for the Sunday. Cancellation notification will be on www.orienteeringtaranaki.org.nz

 Coaches. Nick Collins will lead the coaching team.

Mycoplasma bovis

In the interests of the current farming bio hazard issues and to keep on the good side of our wonderful farm landowners please clean your footwear between events. We need to do our bit to prevent contamination of any type travelling between farms and waterways e.g. didymo and mycoplasma bovis.
Thanks, from the OT committee
