Please share a link to this event with your friends and family - everyone is welcome! Please contact me directly to discuss special arrangements for school, J/ROTC, youth, corporate, or other groups.

This is a low-key, low-stress, self-guided opportunity to learn and practice basic orienteering skills. It is designed for beginning and intermediate orienteers, but participants of all levels are welcome. There will be no timing or scoring provided.

HQ area: Dixon Grove North. Please park in the marked parallel parking spaces on the SW side of the Dixon Grove access road or in the Dixon Grove South lot. Please do not park in the Dixon Grove North parking lot (we need to keep Dixon Grove North parking lot free for other users).

As a with all CoNav events, advance registration is required via EventReg separately for each and every participant, regardless of age or relationship.

There will be three events within this event. Suggested sequence:
1) A map-only, no compass course to help you focus on relating what's on the map to what you see around you and orienting your map accordingly
2) An intensive compass-and-pace counting exercise to get you very comfortable with precision compass work.
3) An Orange (intermediate) course so that you can put it all together!
Advance registration is required - please click to EventReg to register (RSVPing on Meetup is fine, but registration via EventReg is still required.

Please ensure that a separate registration (waiver and payment) has been completed for every single person in your group, regardless of age, relationship, etc. Re-use/sharing of the map and/or walking any part of a course by unregistered persons is not permitted.

**You must select the appropriate "package" for the fee to be calculated correctly. Please do not select "Continue Without Package."***

Select "Competing/Participating," for each "Race" (course map) you wish to go out on. This event is designed for fun, learning, and practice, so please don't be fazed by the use of the word "Race."

Puppies LOVE to take their people orienteering! Dogs are welcome at this event, but handling a map, a compass and a puppy can become challenging, I am told. Leash and pick-up rules apply.

Rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, the event may be canceled at the Registrar's discretion (in which case 100% refunds will be issued).

100% refund if you notify me by email (conavgames at gmail dot com) that you will not be attending no later than 8pm the night before the event.

BYO water, snacks. Free loaner compasses will be available, just ask for one when you check-in.

I hope you'll be able to attend!
