Your Club needs you!
World Orienteering Day 2019 (Date: tba - probably Wednesday 22nd May). We are looking for a person to be the Coordinator for this day, so we can integrate it into our fixtures, and think of development with schools. If you would like to be that person, please contact me, details below.
Organiser needed for the local event at Blaise Castle on October 6th. If we can't find one in the next two weeks, we shall probably have to cancel this. PLEASE volunteer if you can do this.
Organiser needed for the Regional event at Stockhill forest on the Mendips on Sunday, January 27th
If you have been in the club more than 6 months and you are not in a squad. please read on:
I wonder whether you have considered helping out at club events - we are short of people in many of the squads we run.
For example - due to manpower shortages, the First Aid squad will probably not be able to cover all the events BOK has planned and we may have to buy in expertise - costing members more to enter those events.
The 'older' volunteers we have now are becoming fatigued, and we rely on 'newer' members who have been in the club a while to step up and share the workload. If all members helped a couple of times a year, it would ease the pressure significantly.
I can supply more details on the different squads. Please let me know if you can help.
Event Safety Workshop (ESW)
There will be an ESW in September in Bristol. If you are interested in attending, please let me know. I have 3 members wanting/needing one already. If you have volunteered to organise or plan you must have attended an ESW before the event takes place. Free of charge to BOK members!
First Aid Training. I am in the process of organising First Aid training. The day course will be paid for by BOK, the proviso is that those members must commit themselves to being in the First Aid squad.
