Updated Course Planning Guidance

SOA Info/News info

For many years, Graham Nilsen’s “Course Planning” document has been considered a prime source of guidance on the practicalities of planning orienteering courses.  Although many of the principles remain valid, much of the detail has become obsolete in the 20+ years since it was written.  I have therefore re-written it (with Mr Nilsen’s blessing), and the updated document is now available for download.
