We shall be holding a mini 3-phase one day event at Bantry Bay Pony Trekking on Sunday 28th July. There will be a very short POR (orienteering phase) along the trekking trails in the grounds of the venue, an MA phase (control of paces) and a PTV phase (course of 16 obstacles). The purpose of this event is to act as an introduction to the orienteering phase for those who have never done a POR before (especially younger riders) but is also to introduce compass bearings for those who wish to try this aspect of a POR for the first time. We are therefore asking all those with experience of POR/compass bearings to please make themselves available to pair with newcomers/young riders.

All riders are required to report in for the start time, and would be expected to stay until the ridden aspect of the competition is completed for all levels. Riders may be asked to help judge other levels or assist with other tasks so that the competition will run smoothly.
