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 (gmalings@gmail.com).

Orienteering improves brain function as well as physical fitness!
Check out this interview with "the brain doctor", David Raichlin, where he mentions Orienteering at 16:10-18:45 of the podcast.

Training Sessions 

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 gmalings@gmail.com or text 516-477-0852 to sign up.
