2014: Opening Meet

Come one, come all to the first club orienteering meet for 2014!

The club returns to classic format and speedy feet in the parks for January.  At least, classic for beginner and intermediate.  For the advanced crew there is a special variation in store designed to keep you on your toes every step of the way.

The map of Julia Davis/BSU has been expanded and updated to a recent degree thanks to Sergey, so there may be a few more nooks and crannies for those who think they know it all.

Date:  January 25, 2014 (Saturday)
Location:  Julia Davis/BSU, near the Friendship bridge
Time:  starts from 11-12:30.  Course closes at 2pm.
Cost:  $5 per map; free to CTOC members.

  • a baseplate compass (if you have one, otherwise you may borrow)
  • good shoes for combining pavement and potentially slick grass
  • clothes suited for your pace and weather, plus something warm when you get back
  • your brain preloaded with map reading eyes, adaptability, and optimism, i.e. the orienteering software.  For those of you who never did this, we will be happy to show you the ropes!

Speaking of members...you know what this means.  Yes - it's time to renew club dues!  That includes the updated form this year with the new waiver.  Our fees are unchanged (amazing, we don't index for inflation), and linked on the right here on the blog.  If you don't renew this month it gets prorated if you renew later in the year as well.  It's still an especially good deal for family memberships.  Funds go directly to supporting new map efforts, of which I can assure you are underway once again.  If you need any extra incentive, let it be known that Russ Pilcher has already sent his check even though he lives in Arizona now!
Yes, you too could be as happy as this crew in January! (from 2013)
