“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
