Enjoyed the "O" Meet at Pocahontas Sat. Thanks . Any chance next event someone could clear out all the spider webs? My face felt like it was made of kevlar.
Any events coming up?
Hi! I am looking for someone/group willing to help my son's scout troop. We have interest in learning more about orienteering and setting up a course. Any interest out there in helping or could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!
Hello! Although not specifically an orienteering question, I'm hoping some folks here have some experience and a suggestion or two since it is "outdoors-related." So I've been trail running recently and have come across several snakes: mostly harmless ones, but also a couple of copperheads...actually, yesterday, I ran full stride right over the top of one. I have read that copperhead bites are rarely fatal, but still not high on my list of things I want to deal with. As one who is out in the woods orienteering, do you take any precautions? I was thinking of buying some snake-bite resistant gaiters, but the ones I have found are designed more for hunting. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!
Is the June 13th meet up at Chesterfield a Permanent course or are the controls put out right before the start?
Wondering if most folks here use thumb compasses and if so, which kind?
Has the "Night O" been cancelled?
HOVC Council has cancelled COUNCIL scouting events through 4/12 - will this still be held?
I am the Troop Master for a Trail Life group in Mechanicsville. We are a boy led outdoor program. We are attending the meet up on Saturday. Can we start with the Scouts at 9:30? We are a “scouting” type program.
I’d like to acquire a map of the area in advance of the event. Can you point me in the right direction?M
