I wanted to thank you again for a fantastic day on the Navigation clinic. I loved all the stories you shared that made it funny but also really useful. Practicing scenarios and really making us think and read the maps was a really valuable exercise too. I felt like I learnt heaps and am definitely more prepared for the navigation side of the spring challenge. It was a fun and really informative day a must for first timers! Thanks again! H.T. Nelson

Thank you so much for a great day! Navigation doesn’t seem like such a scary monster now! Cannot wait for Spring Challenge! Once again, thank you! A.H. Christchurch
