Thu 22 Feb 2018 — INPUTTING THE TRAINING ON DARTMOOR PROGRAMME

Thanks to great efforts by JCSys, who manage the Ten Tors Website for us, we are able to introduce the promised automated Training on Dartmoor input form. This will generate the report that is compiled weekly for all training within the Dartmoor National Park. As you know, It is made available to the Police, Dartmoor Search and Rescue Teams, Dartmoor National Park Authority Rangers and Ten Tors Officials to assist in the event of an emergency, incident, complaint or non-compliance with the Ten Tors Rules. In addition statistics derived from the Form are used to check compliance with our agreements with landowners and Statutory Bodies.

To enter the details of your Training on Dartmoor;

Log in through your Dashboard.

Click ‘Add New’. Complete the fields in accordance with the guidance given. If you miss out a mandatory field, you will be reminded to go back to complete that field when you click on ‘Save Entry’.

To enter the next day, click "Add new" and you will get the form already partially populated with the first 3 sections of the previous entry. You then have only the Locations sections to complete. The date defaults to the day you are completing the form, ready for you to amend.

If you have a problem or suggestion, please e mail SWHQ-TenTors-MAILBOX@mod.uk. Your comments on this innovation, which will help to ensure accuracy and reduce the time taken to prepare the list, will be appreciated.

Wed 7 Feb 2018 — Where’s to? An observational quiz for Ten Tors

Ten Tors is privileged to be able to train on and complete the Challenges on Dartmoor. Our walkers are taught to care for Dartmoor and be considerate of other users. As a result of guidance by the Team Manager and staff, thousands of teenagers each year become ambassadors for the National Park.

To develop knowledge, the Quiz at Forms,Cards And Notices will encourage observation and knowledge of Dartmoor’s special qualities. It is suggested that Team managers print off the double sided pages and the walkers cut and fold them into A6 booklets. If a larger format is required, this is also at Forms,Cards and Notices

The conditions of the Quiz are printed on Page 2 of the Booklet. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category on Friday 11 May 2018
