New at orienteering or a bit rusty? Think you may need a quick review of map reading or some help with route planning? Join us at 10:30 for a 15 minute Mini-Intro to Orienteering. We ask that you arrive early enough to register for the event first so you have a map in-hand. The instructor will cover the event type, general procedures (SI stick, Clear and Check, finish process etc), safety information and basic map reading/navigation pointers. Look for the sign near the registration table and we'll see you there.

The following day visit our Route Gadget page to enter the route you took and compare to others or just have a look at how others tackled the course. -- a great learning tool.
