Your Club Needs You!

Volunteer to help at events

Planning an event can be a rewarding and interesting experience that will improve your orienteering and help out your club. If you would like to have a go at planning your own event but feel unsure about it, we have a full set of detailed guides and instructions to help you out. We can also match you up with an experienced planner who can guide you through your first event. The Southdowns club has a wealth of planning experience there to help and advise you. Also, all events have a local controller that will make sure everything is ok. So you can’t really go wrong. Why not give it a go?

The club needs more Planners. So if you are an experienced Planner please consider sharing your experience by planning an event with a novice.

If you only want to plan a course but leave the organisation to someone else, this can also be arranged.

The club also always needs volunteers to help out in the other roles:
Map-Sales, Registration (SI), Meeting-and-Greeting, Car-Parking, Control-setting, Control-collection. To find out more about what these jobs entail visit the Volunteer job descriptions page.

This is a great way of getting to know other club members, so if you would like to get involved please contact Will Heap or contact the planner directly.
