The next Women’s Nav Skills Weekend will be conducted over 18 and 19 March 2017 in the Lithgow region.
Over the two days we will focus on foundation navigation skills and getting in some non-competitive practice. Whether you are looking to learn new skills for adventure racing or keen to sneak in some orienteering training ahead of the winter season, this weekend will offer something for you.
We have a team of experienced and friendly female coaches lined up and they are ready to help you progress your nav skills.
Women of all ages that are keen to learn or improve their off-track navigation and orienteering skills. You are very welcome if you have never navigated in a bush environment before. You are also very welcome if you are experienced but just want to brush up on some skills or get in some practice (and spend time with an awesome bunch of women!).
Accommodation will be at the Black Gold Country Cabins. It is conveniently located at Wallerawang and offers comfortable shared accommodation in Villas and Cabins. All linen is included.
Participants should make their own transport arrangements. It is likely that there will be car sharing opportunities. If you would like a lift or a ride from Lithgow train station and do not know anyone driving please let us know as we are very happy to make some introductions.
