For the 'winter season' PFOs Club Night will alternate between Marl Pits, Rawtenstall, and Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School (BRGS) Sports Hall in Waterfoot.
We meet in the pavilion next to the Rugby Club when at Marl Pits, or in the main sports hall at BRGS.
We meet every Wednesday night between 6.45 and 8.30pm. The club night is open to anyone - you do not need to be a member of PFO to attend (for your first few weeks). At Club Night there is a mixture of fitness training and orienteering skills geared to suit all ages and abilities with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment.
FAMILIES: S2/J2 £6, S2/J1 £5.50 S1/J2 £4,50m S1/J1 £3.50
You do not have to be a member of PFO to come to the training nights. Come along and have a go - wear loose comfortable clothes e.g. track suit trousers + trainers. Sessions will be suitable for people who have never tried orienteering or have done a little and want to improve. They are a mixture of skills + fitness training. Sessions will involve learning how to navigate using simple exercises indoors and outdoors (weather and light permitting) also physical exercises to build your body strength and flexibility.
All ages are welcome. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
Orienteering is an excellent way to get fit, learn to read a map and see a wide variety of places. It is a sport can take place in all sorts of places, from town parks to open hillsides and even in city centres.
There is time for a chat over tea, coffee or juice (with plenty of biscuits!) afterwards. The social time afterwards is a good chance to have a chat and get to know your fellow orienteers a bit better.
If you have any questions please contact Gillian on 07713 678677 or
I look forward to seeing you.
