Christmas Zoom Social

Our final virtual social of the year is on Thursday on Zoom! The last chance of 2020 to catch up and have some festive orienteering fun.  

17th December 20:00 - Christmas Social on Zoom - wear your Santa hats or festive jumpers and bring a drink of your choice! 

Our last social was on physical vs mental for orienteering. Two teams argued their side, but ultimately mental was voted the winner (8-4 with some abstainers!) Tamsin Moran showed us tracking of an event and how the technically better orienteers were getting ahead, Rob Finch argued that to be competitive you had to be physically fit (think British M21E courses), Andy Nash gave examples of his better performances when his concentration and motivation were coming together and Ian Moran argued that we do it to get out and get some exercise and if we wanted a mental challenge we would sit at home and do the crossword... Kevin Bracher has also provided a really good summary on the post here: 

For 2021, I am planning on continuing the fortnightly Zoom socials (7th and 21st January). The socials will include tips and talks on improving our orienteering and discussions on orienteering topics (and a chance to talk to clubmates!) 

Looking forward to seeing you online! Everyone welcome
