The Ordnance Survey Champions in the Peak District
You could not find a more engaged group of hill baggers and outdoor ambassadors than the OS Champions! Conversion ranged from the OS’s superb #GetOutside initiative, to conservation to banana protectors (you had to be there), but the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm these folk had for our wonderful countryside and the enjoyment of it was mind blowing. Vote Mary Anne for the next Chair of the BMC!
Organised by Liz and Steph at OS, the Champions attended a two day course on either intermediate or advanced navigation. While the intermediate finished in the evening to go to the pub and wave through the window, the advanced group headed off for night nav.
All the Champions understandably had a high level of navigation expertise and brushed up nailing spot heights and small peat bog features in the clag to make OS proud!
The main take away from the weekend though is the work these guys do to promote our outdoors and encouraging people to enjoy our beautiful countryside – great job OS Champions and thank you!
Book a navigation course today and go on a course with the people who train Special Forces selection candidates, and work with great companies such as Ordnance Survey and TRAIL magazine.
The Ultimate Navigation School is a charity providing navigation courses with profits going to Fix the Fells, Mend Our Mountains, The Mountain Bothy’s Association and the John Muir Trust.
