The Orienteering for Beginners Class teaches those from absolute beginners to relative novices the orienteering skills needed to participate confidently in the sport. Instruction is given by a seasoned orienteer to a small group. This program includes a lecture session dealing with compass and contour maps, a map hike with your instructor, and a short beginner-level course that you will complete on your own. Equipment: sturdy walking or hiking shoes and a simple baseplate compass (we have loaners). Online registration before the event is encouraged. The fee for this program is $10 per registration (individual or small group together) which will be collected at the event. Registration will occur from 10:30am to 11:00, with instruction beginning promptly at 11:00am.
This instructional event will get you ready for the event next Saturday at Fry Family Park in southern Stark County and the night orienteering event at Quail Hollow in November.
These events are orchestrated by the NE Ohio Orienteering Club.
Location is at the end of Tyner St. off Perry Drive on the east shore clubhouse on Sippo Lake.
