Description:AVOC will be having 3 early evening training sessions in September, on the 3rd, 10th and 17th. Each session will begin at 18:00 hrs ( 6pm) and finish at 20:00 hrs (8pm). As the evening light is fading it would be good to arrive by 17:45 hrs (5:45pm) to get prepared to do your activity. A training requirement is that participants assist in picking up controls and in cleaning up. No refreshments or awards will be provided, just training.

Fees: 21 and over $4; youth up to 20, $2. If any youth brings a friend, that friend is free on their first training session. Costs assist in printing. PLEASE let me know via e-mail by the Wednesday evening before at [jlblanc@eastlink.ca]. Call 678-8868 if you need further directions.

The concept is to have a review session on the course(s) before leaving to understand the route choices and techniques used to achieve your results.

Session 1 on Sept 3rd will be at Camelot Park in Kentville, off Cannan Ave. Just come down the driveway and park at the bottom, near the front of the house.

Training concept will be control picking for the youth and beginners while intermediate and advanced will do a two loop point to point but you must place your controls on your map before you start but will be on time once you receive the blank map. Aim here is to find and plot your control sites correctly before leaving the master map.
