Organizer: Troy Smith (Event Director)
Given the ongoing state of emergency this event will be rescheduled to a later date if possible.
We suspect most of our members are somewhat orienteering-deprived right now. Therefore, if there is enough interest, we will host a virtual event at the time this event was meant to be held.
The virtual event will use the Zoom platform. (Participants will need to express interest via the club email, and will receive login information and a password). The event will consist of a brief review of the "Sprint Laws" and a short training exercise that can be done at home with a minimal amount of preparation.
To participate, you will need:
- Internet access. The more portable your device, the better, particularly if you plan to participate outside, where your internet connection may not reach.
- A (sprint) orienteering map or two with a course on it. (The more complicated, the better - we will email pdf's of maps to all participants who register, but you can also use any map you already have).
- Indoor or outdoor space to set up some obstacles (which won't hurt too much of you happen to trip over them - e.g. boxes, balls, rope, cushions, chairs, leaf piles, cones, tires, etc.). This can be your deck, your backyard, your living room, basement, hallway - whatever works.
The virtual event will take place at 11:00AM on April 18, 2020. Please register via email (ValleyOrienteering@outlook.com) so that we can send the zoom login information and instructions. All are welcome - no previous orienteering experience is required.
Please note: Organizers obviously cannot check each obstacle course created by participants for safety, thus this is not considered a sanctioned event for insurance purposes. Participation is at your own risk.
