The Western Pennsylvania Orienteering Club will host a meet at Deer Lakes county park (Pine shelter) on Sunday Sept 16, from 11 AM to 2 PM. It will be free for those that are new to the sport and have not done this before (for all others, it is $5/map).
Orienteering is a sport that combines physical aspects such as running or walking, and thinking - in this case it is map reading. An astute thinker but slower participant can out-beat a youthful energetic competitor should the latter make the wrong turn or other navigational mistake.
Instruction is provided on site by volunteers. Compass are available for loan.
