Hi,
Does anyone have any good suggestions for resources for o techniques. I've read a bunch of the books out there already and at one point I had seen a powerpoint presentation from thierry georgiou but have since lost it. All suggestions are welcome. thanks.

Many national orienteering federations have a page of tips for newcomers. Orienteering USA is here:
https://www.orienteeringusa.org/new-o

World of O has a technique training page:
http://o-training.net/

Our club Facebook page runs a series called Technique Tip Tuesday, which gathers tips from around the web:

Is this for someone at your level, Jeremy? Or are you introducing new people?

Ask Jeff / Canadian about the Orienteering Canada Skills and Development database. I forget the ideas / permissions behind who can access it.

Thierry has been very generous posting tips he has learned in his long orienteering career. Was this perhaps one of the pages of which you lost track?

I don´t check it myself just read in Compass Sport about it. Seemed like something you´re looking for.
