Organizer: Jeff Teutsch (Coach)

This is the second session in the Advanced Technical Training program.

Training Exercise / Focus: Control Picking (controls every 100-150m)

Description of session: There will be a single course with numerous options to shortcut so you can get the distance you want. The goal is to focus on basic orienteering processes: Control flow, Map reading, and Visualisation

Meeting point: 

We will be meeting at the end of the road by the gate. Please car pool if possible as there is not a lot of space there and the local community does not like excessive traffic on that road.

Additional Comments:

Join us for lunch at the PowderHorn Saloon in Bragg Creek afterwards for good company and course review!

The session will consist of 15-20 minutes of instruction at 10:30 prior to sending participants out onto the course for the training exercise. After the exercise, the coach will touch base with as many participants as possible to see how it went and provide them with specific comments and feedback based on their comments.

Anyone that wants to do a warm-up before the main exercise should arrive early and do their warm-up before 10:30.

The Advanced Technical Training program is a 10-week series consisting of 5 training sessions, 2 courses (treat as a race or a training session), the Alberta Champs near Edmonton, the AOA training camp near Sundre, and culminating with a ‘B-Meet’ or local event in Fish Creek Park.
