What is Orienteering? It's like a treasure hunt in the woods using a map to find controls (box shaped flags hanging from trees). We usually have 3 courses: White/easy ~2 miles all controls on trails, Yellow/medium ~3 miles controls can be seen from trail, and Orange-Blue/hard ~4-5 miles with all controls hidden in the woods. You can compete as an individual or a team (usually 2-3 people). For more info, see our Fact Sheet or email Glen (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Glen will be running "Advanced Skills Training sessions" at 9:30am (please arrive by 9:15) before each meet to practice skills for difficult controls such as deciding on an "attack point," pace count & compass reading, collecting features, aiming off, and contouring. Please contact him at email@example.com or text 516-477-0852 to sign up.
See you in the Spring...
