LTC (ret) Bob Turbyfill teaches the double-sweep in the Level 1 coaching course. If the team is still doing Orienteering Winter Weekend, we'd come out and hold the coaching course to certify cadets again...just like teaching, coaching is a great way to improve your skills. Ditto for mapping and course setting. I keep meaning to talk to you all about holding a coaching clinic at A meets, but getting the whole family through courses and back on the road home has proven distracting!

Nice run today. - and over the past few meets. Are you JWOC eligible this year?

Not any more, unfortunately. My next targets will be WUOC 2016 and WOC 2016.

We greatly appreciate the training done by LTC (ret) Turbyfill. As a future team OTTO, I especially benefit from coaching training and clinics of that nature!

Well, we all get old! Those are good targets, though. Perhaps also CISM 2016, depending on the timing?

I think the end of his time as an M20 was when we just moved Jordan up to Blue on non-championship courses when we weren't trying to come back with medals...we also took him and Mike Norris to Team Trials to get a feel for what that was like. It was a few years before Jordan had the consistency to challenge for (and make) the team, but I think going to those races as practice is important.

My husband was an OTTO...used to copy maps by hand during linguistics class, much to my amusement. I had no idea what orienteering was back in those days! Perfect job for O training, though.

Who should we talk to about OWW - John Hensley Williams? With COL Hendricks gone, we've lost touch with the officer side of the team.

Sure, or James.O' (our CIC) should be able to get you in contact with MAJ Malcomb, our current OIC.

CISM 2016, cannot say I know much about that! Right now we are just prepping for QOC's Long Day's Night, a definite ultralong challenge!

OTTO tasks are certainly less complicated nowadays, but I still find it time-consuming!
