Activity

We are arranging a one-day workshop covering basic navigation techniques including: an introduction to maps, orientation of the map, determining the direction of travel, distance, and timings, identifying map features, basic compass use and route planning. The day should give you a snapshot of the tools required to plan and undertake walks in lowland terrain. Safety and LNT (leave no trace) will also be covered. Information for the course: Compass and area map provided. Area covered is OS Map 181, Chiltern Hills North - bring this map if you have it. Please bring paper and pencil, usual walking gear and boots, packed lunch and drinks. Flask of hot tea / coffee would be a good idea. We will finish mid-afternoon. The trainer is a qualified Mountain Leader, D of E supervisor and assessor to gold level and NNAS provider. The day will give you an insight into going on to gain the Mountain Training lowland leader or a NNAS qualification if you have an interest in this area. We will offer further training to everyone booked in for the course so that they can aim to become qualified walk leaders for the club.

Booking conditions for HAWOG events

  • If you submit a booking and your request can be met then you are committed to the purchase.
  • It is your responsibility to know or check in advance the cost per person.
  • If your request can be met then you'll receive an email from the organiser informing you of the cost, how calculated, and you'll be required to make any payment within 14 days of the date of the email. It's your responsibility to remember to check and respond to that email.
  • If you cancel you will only get a refund if someone else pays for your place. It's your responsibility to find a replacement, you can do this by emailing our group and informing that you have a place to sell, and letting the event organiser know. The group will sell remaining uncommitted places first before 'returned' places.

If your request cannot be met then you will be informed of this and what possibilities are available. You may then inform the organiser if you want to be added to a waiting list. A waiting list means you get informed soonest if suitable places become available, it does not commit you to purchasing them but you will need to confirm, and book, in a short period of time if you want them.

Methods of Payment

Whilst most membership, surcharges and events can be paid for online via our PayPal account, there are a few alternatives for attendees and events where online payment via our PayPal account is not possible:

  • Pay electronically direct to our group bank account.
  • Pay in person at a branch of our group's bank.
  • Get someone else to pay online for you.
  • Ask the organiser of events you need to pay for, if they will accept payment direct to them (and they pay group for you).
  • Occasionally, cash and cheques may be accepted at key events and dates.
  • Cash and cheques may be accepted for a small handling charge.

For all of the above, please ensure the Chair, Treasurer or event organiser knows how you will pay. Please email us for more information.
