In NSW Australia we have each year a Women's Training weekend, enabling mums and others with family responsibilities an escape and a chance to concentrate on their own orienteering development. Something similar for girls or in conjunction with each other could work.

Naming your daughters Emma looks to be a good starting point.

Missed it (was picking up controls from a youth meet). If anyone attended, would you suggest any major take-aways for event organizers, O' clubs, teachers, coaches?
