Sat 28Jan Begintermediate Orienteering in Elizabeth
Please share a link to this event with your friends and family - everyone is welcome!
The Evans and Casey Jones Parks in Elizabeth are VERY special places to learn orienteering because they offer good examples of nearly every type of feature you'll in forest (and sprint) orienteering in a small, fenced-in, easily accessible location!
This is a low-key, low-stress opportunity to learn and practice basic orienteering skills. It is designed for beginning and intermediate orienteers, but participants of all levels are welcome.
As a with all CoNav events, advance registration is required via EventReg . Please separately register each and every participant, regardless of age or relationship.
There will be three self-guided* events within this event, recommended in this order:
- A map-only, no compass course to help you focus on relating what’s on the map to what you see around you and orienting your map accordingly
- An intensive compass-and-pace counting exercise to get you very comfortable with precision compass work.
- An Orange (intermediate) course so that you can put it all together!
*Printed instructions and annotations available, plus I'll be on-hand, of course.
Advance registration is required - please click to EventReg to register (RSVPing on Meetup is fine, but registration via EventReg is still required.
Every participant (all children, relatives, team members, etc) must have their own separate registration and waiver.

Children 12 and younger accompanied by their fully registered parent/legal guardian are FREE!
Here's how to register*:
-1st, individually register each of your 12-and-unders, signing their waivers for them and skipping the payment part (I'll clear this on my end).
-2nd, start all over again to individually register yourself and each of your 13-and-overs including waiver and payment via PayPal/Credit Card.
