Being a come and try it event we had success in that out of the 65 people in the day event many were either new to orienteering or not members of the club. Plenty of juniors and even a hardy few tried the night event which endured the main weather of strong winds and heavy rainfall. I thank all my helpers in this event without which it would not have been such a success.
Now is the time to look at the next CATI event on Sat 16th November at Uphams Plantation, Woodbury Common. Helpers needed please and of course plenty of orienteers to try out the day and night events.

Explanation of colour courses
- White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
- Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
- Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
- Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
- Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
- Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
- Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
- Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
