All event officials (planners, organisers and controllers) must have completed this course, so it is an ideal opportunity for anyone who still needs to complete it.

NATO club coaching - posted 8.4.18
NATO invites all orienteers whatever club or none to their training event at Druridge Bay (Dunes not Country Park) on Sat, 28th April. All age groups welcome, but please advise of intention to attend as per flyer. The training is aimed at people progressing from Orange to Light Green orienteering courses (moving from Technical Difficulty 3 to 4). Focus will be shifted from using line features and paths to navigation using knolls and depressions, learning to interpret contours and gain experience in a sand dune area.
JK2018 results - posted 4.4.18
The JK was held in the West Midlands this year over the Easter weekend and a number of NN members made the trip down. Full results can be found here but there were a few notable performances - Maya Hampshire -Wright (2/38, W14A) and Nigel Wright (11/66, M45L). There was also a good result in the Mixed Ad Hoc relays by Nigel Wright, Julian and Barney Warren finishing 2nd. Well done to all those members who took part.
CSC round 1 results - 11.3.18 - posted 11.3.18
Round 1 of the CSC / Trophy was hosted by SYO at Canklow today. Due to a variety of injuries to some key members, the club entered a very depleted team managing to field only 10 counting runners (13 needed to cover all courses). Full results can be found here. Unfortunately we were well beaten on points on the day but well done to all club members who turned out.
