As you will be aware we agreed in 2017 to several changes in the way we run the Beginners’ Courses.
The aim was to maintain the present ratio of 3 instructors and 3 or 4 assistants to 12 participants and to have a lead instructor for both days who will probably give the initial presentation; a second instructor will handle the practical demonstrations at the Training Ground, explaining foundations and setting up lines and poles. An assistant (usually Harry, or someone designated when he’s unavailable) to ensure the equipment is on site ahead of the participants’ arrival.
This has worked well in 2018 and so will be continued for 2019.
An indication of your availability for the 2019 courses would be very much appreciated. Please respond to Sid – the dates of Courses can be found in the Schedule of Meetings, Branch Programme on this website.
