NZOF DEVELOPMENT SQUAD

FIRST TRAINING CAMP 2001

MANAWATU/TARANAKI, 22-28 JAN

The first Development Squad training camp for 2001 will be held from 22-28 January. We'll be based at Foxton Beach in the Manawatu from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th, when we will move to New Plymouth. We'll train on Manawatu sand-dune and Tararua foothill maps. The Camp Champs will be the Taranaki Turkey Trot (27 Jan), and you can also take part next day in the Turkey Traverse, a long-distance event which you can do as an individual or a team.

Coaching arranged by Michael Wood, with help from National Squad members and Coaching Director Jean Cory-Wright.

While D Squad training camps are designed primarily for the capabilities and fitness levels of the squad, the camps are always open to other young people from 17 years, and younger orienteers who have been running red courses for a year or more. You must have been affiliated to NZOF in 2000.

WHEN: Arrive Monday 22 Jan 4-6pm. Depart after the Turkey Traverse on Sunday 28 Jan, expected to be about 2pm.

WHERE: Mon-Fri at Foxton Beach Boys Brigade Camp, Fri-Sun yet to be arranged at New Plymouth.

COST: $150 plus Turkey Trot and Traverse entries. You must enter these events yourselves separately, but the fee covers accommodation and food in New Plymouth.

TRANSPORT: We envisage that vans will travel from Wellington and Auckland to the camp, and return afterwards. As always these arrangements will depend on circumstances. We always try to help with transport costs particularly from the other island.

COACHES and COOK: We invite National Squad members to help us on this camp. The number we can afford depends on the number of participants, but this may increase if the Coaching Director declares this a "Coach Training" opportunity. And we seek a camp cook, please ask your parents if one of them would be able to help.

APPLICATIONS: Send in the form below with payment by Christmas. If you can't manage the fee at this time put the form in anyway as an indication of your interest.

FURTHER INFORMATION: Further information will be sent to all participants in the week of 8 Jan, by email and post. If you could be away from your usual address then please make arrangements for your mail to be forwarded to you.
