Tunney's Pasture Orienteering Practice Thursday Orienteering Practice
October 17th 2019 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Organizers: Jeff Teutsch (Coach), Jennie Anderson (Coach)
Map: Pré Tunney's Pasture
Parking and meeting point: We will be meeting at the West end of Colombine Driveway (in the NW corner of Tunney's Pasture) for a 6:30 start.
Training: The training exercise is all about control descriptions.
For the advanced group there will be a pinflag in each control circle that matches the location described by the control description. A trick to make it really challenging (and more importantly to force you to read the control descriptions): The pin flag / control description location will not necessarily be in the centre of the control circle! There will be multiple loops.
For the intermediate group there will be a series of loops with controls designed to get you to read and learn your control descriptions. The final loop will have no map in the inside of the control circle so you will have to find the flag (pin flag) by reading and understanding the control descriptions.
The train to train program will use a combination of the advanced and intermediate exercises.
A reminder to please e-mail Jeff Teutsch at email@example.com by noon on Thursday to reserve a map. We do not guarantee maps for those that don't send an e-mail.
Note: Everyone should have a headlamp for this practice (we strongly recommend one with at least 1000 lumens) as it will be getting dark before the end of the session. If you have any questions about purchasing a headlamp please let us know.
