ED/CS Notes:

Join us for a full set of courses plus a beginner’s class plus a Yes-or-No-O at Governor Dick!

 

Starts any time from 10AM to 1PM (Yes-or-No-O starts until 2PM).  Control pickup will begin at 3PM.

There will be a Free Introduction to Orienteering Class at 11AM (after the class you can try out a course!)

 

Registration is on the porch of the environmental center, right next to the parking lot.

 

Courses will let you take your pick of the more open north side of the park, the rocky technical south side, or challenge your ability to adjust your orienteering approach by doing a mix of both!

 

In the Yes-or-No-O, some of the controls will not be placed in the correct spot marked on the map. Your goal is to complete the course only punching the correctly placed controls.

 

More detailed course notes will be posted on the e-board closer to the date of the event.
