Orienteering at Almaden-Quicksilver Park


I am the Event Director for an Orienteering Meet and Quicksilver Park on Oct 20, 2013. There will be 7 course difficulties ranging from about 1.5 miles on trails to about 6 miles off-trail. You can start any time between 10 AM and 12:30 PM as long as you finish by 2 PM. It usually takes about 60-90 minutes to complete a course. We will have beginner's clinics at around 9:45-10:30 for first-timers. Our events are predominantly on Sundays, so there are very few church-goers here. Come out with your family and enjoy the park and refreshments afterwards, and meet some athletic geeky map-readers, or families teaching their kids how to navigate outdoors. Please Carpool as parking is limited. Note that there is a small fee to do a course.
