Date: April 16
Venue: 138 Tirriki St., Charlestown and bushland at Whitebridge
Time: 10am sharp to around 3pm

This workshop, with input from Ian Dempsey, Denis Lyons and Russell
Rigby, is designed for inexperienced orienteering mappers who want to
learn basic mapping skills. However, more experienced mappers are
welcome to attend to share their expertise. At the end of the day,
participants will have:
● Been introduced to basic mapping techniques for orienteering, and
● Used those techniques to map some local bushland.

The day will comprise a 2 hour theory session in the morning, followed
by a 2 hour practical activity in the afternoon. You’ll need the
following things:
● A mapping board around 30 x 30cm. This needs to be firm but
lightweight and could be masonite, Perspex or polystyrene (the latter
covered with adhesive sheet).
● Mapping pencils that roughly correspond to an orienteering
map’s main colours of black, brown, blue, yellow and green. Clutch
action pencils with 0.5mm coloured leads are good, but sharp coloured
pencils can also work.
● A baseplate or thumb compass, a short ruler, an eraser and masking tape.
● Lunch.

You can bring a GPS unit that reads grid references from a topographic
map, but it’s not essential. To help with organisation, please let Ian know you’re coming (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 49435790).
