October Club Meeting

October 11, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

“Map and Compass” will be the theme for this meeting.  An introductory session on this will be run by Andrew, one of our members.  This will be the first of several sessions on this topic to be held over the next year or so.  The following information will give you an idea of what to expect:

Good map reading is a skill that once learned is never lost, just like riding a bike, and we shall look at a few map reading sessions over the next year or so. In modern days we are becoming increasingly reliant on electronic devices for navigation, however good map reading could become a life-saver if these devices should ever fail.
With these sessions I will try and encourage you all to investigate the wonderful world of reading maps, and the joy it can bring when one is out in the countryside and you end up in the place you want to be by great map reading.
On the first meeting, we will have an introduction to maps and compasses and using them together. We shall look at what a map is, how to orientate it, what a grid reference is and how to find this grid reference on the map. We shall have a look at compasses and what to look for with them.

Assuming we are still at Covid-19 Alert Level 2 on 11 October, the meeting will be held in the church building rather than the hall and we would encourage you all to wear a mask.  A sign-in form and hand sanitiser will be available.
