Monday’s session was a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities.
We warmed up and practised compass techniques with the Last Man Out bearing game. The Last Man Out this week was Emma, the youngest participant. Well done Emma – showing your elders the way home!
The evening concluded outside with a night bearing exercise. A 4 by 4 grid of stakes were set out each 50 metres apart. Participants had to navigate set courses around the stakes (SI boxes used). The moonlight did give the participants some help, the nearest stake being just visible, but on the longer legs the bearings had to be very accurate. The results and an example of one of the courses can be viewed by clicking here.
Next week will be indoors – all welcome 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Longcroft School, Beverley
