Club Night – Monday 29th November – Millthorpe School

Club Night 6.30pm Monday 29th November: Millthorpe School, Nunthorpe Ave, York YO23 1WF

There are plenty of cycle racks and many of you can walk or run there but by car, access the school via Nunthorpe Avenue or Philadelphia Terrace (additional cycle/pedestrian access via Southlands Road). There is a car park at either side. Meet 6.30pm first you need to find the Sports Hall… don’t enter the Sports Hall, instead go east to the north side of the next building – no muddy shoes! – see the bottom map extract showing the sports hall building.

Each week there are maps prepared for beginners as well as experienced orienteers. We will be outdoors and jogging so dress appropriately. In winter, there may be some mud! Don’t forget your headtorch/torch.

This week’s exercise is aimed at better understanding of contour shapes. There will be a map with lots of circles blanked out and with contour shapes shown nearby.. but which hill belongs in which circle? An example is shown below with the three hills to the right of the map extract:

It is forecast to be cold so dress up a bit warmer than usual!
