So I may become a sacrificial lamb, and have a go at hosting a discussion /talk on navigation.
This would be rather experimental. But I worked out last week the “share screen” on Zoom at least. My reason for offering, is that I already have a set of handouts which I’ve compiled over the years to teach navigation.
The ground I can cover (pun intended) would include:
Origins of OS maps and the construction of the Grid.
The meaning of grid references
Three different types of “North”
Practical map use:- orientation and finding your position
Finding your way — planning ahead
Tick-off features / Guide features / collector features
Uses of an altimeter
Attack points and route planning
Compass bearings … timing and pacing
What differences are there in winter ? Uses of snowballs
To a good number of members this is “meat and drink” so perhaps you would like to host (eg) “Planning an Alpine Trip” instead. However it may be of interest to others, even if only to brush up or discuss things.
My material is mostly manuscript A4 notes of my own. I’ll need to type up much of the stuff to show better on screen. So I would ask for expressions of interest please to make sure there is enough interest to make the preparation worthwhile. If a decent number are interested, we’ll select an evening to Zoom
