Mine Falls Park is a hidden gem, with a maze of trails through the woods along the river and canals. It's relatively flat, but offers interesting navigation.
There will be a range of courses offered, from beginner to intermediate to advanced. It's a perfect area to improve your skills, since the mapped area is bounded by fences and water, keeping you from getting too far off course.
This event is in sponsored by the Up North Orienteers Club (http://www.upnoor.org/), an orienteering club based in New Hampshire. There will be a registration form and the fee is $5 or $10 for adults, depending on which course you choose.
The meet registration starts at 10. We'll have a group instruction session at 10:30. We can help you pick the right course level for your ability, and the meetup format allows you to go in twos or threes, even if you don't have a friend to bring with you. Groups of more than three are discouraged, since then too many people are followers, and not actively navigating.
This event is outdoors and will happen rain or shine. Please bring a compass if you have one. If not, you will be able to borrow one. Bring your reading glasses if you need them to see the map and/or read the compass. Please dress to be out in the woods for a couple hours. A small pack with snacks and water might be appreciated. Trail shoes or hiking boots are recommended.
The courses close at 2:30, so plan your time around that.
