The bulk of this weeks session was taken up with introducing using compasses to orientate the map.  We used the Go4O session Number 6 for this.

After spending some time introducing how to align the map with the compass and how to take a bearing, people started doing the exercises.  The first few were quite straightforward, but when the maps started having artificially moved North lines, some people got rather confused.

After the break we did a little more compass work, then had some fun with the photo symbol cards doing a relay.

The Go4O session was a little bit too complicated for a first compass exercise for some.  I hope to do something different with compasses next week.
