Volunteers’ Weekend 13-15 May
Notes from all the sessions are now available for download, along with quiz answers and other bits; also description of Sudok-O.
Some 45 highly deserving individuals attended the SOA’s recent Volunteers’ Weekend, planned to offer learning opportunities and a lot of enjoyment, in the spectacular setting of Glenmore Lodge.
Activities started with a swim in Loch Morlich, and ended with an enjoyable team orienteering challenge on an area of open hillside just below the Cairngorm ski slopes. In between, folk learnt about various topics including course planning, fundraising, use of social media, Condes, how to identify and nurture talented youngsters, and discussed a wide range of topics. We also made new friends and revived old friendships, always a joy.
The quiz around topics covered at the weekend was won by Smarty McSmugpants Davie Frame (TAY), with Alan Halliday (MOR) in close second place, while Stuart Anderson (GRAMP) took the honours in the quiz based on articles in recent issues of CompassSport. In as much as the team score event on Sunday afternoon was a race, it was won by the team of Mehmet, Elaine and Andrew. Details of control sequences and times for all teams are downloadable below, along with answers to the quizzes and other challenges. Thanks to CompassPoint and CompassSport for prizes donated.
Session notes and other stuff are below for download. Grateful thanks to all tutors, facilitators etc., and to enthusiastic participants. Without all of you, it would be somewhat meaningless!
