Organizer: Pam James
Registration: 10:00am to 10:45
Bonus activity: After the sprint race there will be a fun 2 person relay for anyone and everyone that is interested. It is a star relay, with 4 easy controls and 4 hard controls. One team member will get the easy controls and the other will get the hard controls. You have to alternate between hard and easy.
A FREE Beginners Clinic will be offered for those interested in learning more about Orienteering. Basic skills such as how to read an orienteering map and do simple navigation will be included. The beginners’ clinic will be held from 10-10:30am. Registration for the beginners clinic will be at 9:45am. A waiver will be required, and beginners wanting to try a course after the clinic will also need a membership form (see below for details). Standard OANS fees will apply to the course, however there is no charge for the clinic.
Pre-Registration for the event (and the beginner clinic) is recommended to guarantee a map. Each participant in OANS events is required to sign a waiver and membership form once per year for insurance purposes. OANS membership is automatic (and free!) with participation in any event.
First event of the season? Speed up registration by printing your membership and waiver form, and completing them in advance (available on OANS and AVOC websites). See "Resources" on this website for all necessary forms (Click on "OANS Registration Materials”).
There will be 3 courses available.
Beginner course: The controls will be located along trails or just off the trail.
Intermediate course: Controls will be near trails, but there will be more route choices between controls.
Advanced course: More challenging
