Nelson Orienteering are hosting a 2 day Controllers Clinic on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August 2020. The clinic will be run by Marquita Gelderman (an IOF Adviser). We are inviting you to come and join us.

This would interest orienteering course planners and controllers that want to start on the path to being an A or B-Level controller, or those that simply want to update their skill-set.

Please contact Russell Higham [email protected] if you wish to attend or have any questions.
There is no cost, its a service the Orienteering New Zealand provides.
The tentative program will look like this:
