National Orienteering Day -- September 16

Join us for our National Orienteering Day at Hidden Springs. This location provides a mix of suburban, rural, and foothills terrain. We will orienteer on an improved version of the entirely new map we first used last December. Hidden Springs' diverse terrain allows flexibility in course setting come rain or shine. There will be the usual three courses (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) suitable for all ages and abilities. In addition there will be a special instructional course designed to illustrate basic orienteering skills. A step-by-step instruction sheet will accompany the map for this course.

Who: Orienteers of all ages and abilities (beginners to advanced)

When: Sunday, September 16. Registration begins at 9:30am and continues to 12. Courses will be open for starts from 10 am – 12. Courses close at 2 pm. You may arrive within this window to try a course, as participants start separately a few minutes apart.

Start/Finish Location:
West end of Deerpath Drive:  Hidden Springs, Idaho 83714

Entry fees: $5.00 per map for non-members (individual or group). Free to members of the City of Trees Orienteering Club.
