Outdoor Navigation for Intermediates – CANCELLED

September 30 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $12

Putting navigation skills to use
ADULTS & YOUTH AGES 10+

In this intermediate follow-on to the orienteering intro course (Exploring is Awesome), we take your new map navigation skills into a larger park. Explore Putney Woods as you navigate with a
contour map, get familiar with a compass, learn to “relocate”, and more. After some preliminary training, you’ll complete a course in the park at your own speed. Also good for refreshing orienteering skills if you haven’t been to an event in a while.  The intro course offered the day before is not required, but is recommended for novice or young map readers to ease the learning curve. Min 10 / Max 30

Bring: Outdoor shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and compass if you have one.

Instructor: Bob Forgrave is former director of the state orienteering youth league and former middle school team coach, bob.forgrave@flatbike.com.

Location: Putney Woods Trail System. Meet at the parking lot off Lone Lake Road.

Sun | Sep 30 | 10am–1pm | $12*
*Youth ages 12 under, accompanied by a registered adult, are half price.
