Klubb Activity Evenings

Activity Evenings in 2019

Come and join us and develop your orienteering skills

Our Activity Evenings are open to all, including those not members of DFOK.

They are usually held on the last Wednesday of every month, excluding August and December. Summer sessions are outdoors and when the light fades, the sessions move to Woodlands Farm Trust, 331 Shooters Hill, Welling DA16 3RP.

All evenings start at 7:30pm and finish at 9pm.

There will be usually two topics on each indoor evening, the first being some form of development of your orienteering techniques such as exercises on route choice, viewing and analysing the routes taken by club members and others at recent events, and more.

We also need to widen the number of club members interested and willing to fulfil the various tasks that need to be undertaken to put on an event, be it organising, planning, mapping, computers etc. We will take a specific topic each evening and an expert will share their knowledge of how they approach the task with the aim of making others feel more confident in dealing with these aspects … and to know our limitations too when extra help will be needed.

The activity evenings are also a chance to get to know club members better in a more relaxed atmosphere than when we are engrossed in putting on events!

The series is as follows:
