      Beginning Orienteering Class

      The Vulcan Orienteering Club will teach a beginning Orienteering Class at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve in the Nature Center on October 12, 2019. It is open to anyone who is open to roaming the woods. The cost is $55 with early registration and includes a sandwich lunch and a compass. We start at 8:30 am and will finish by 5:00 pm.
      Class starts at 8:30 am and will include three hours of classroom training, 90 minutes of practice, and a two-hour competition.
      Learn what Orienteering ‘is’ and ‘is not’. Learn how to use your compass. Do you know how to read a terrain map? You will after this class. Learn and practice techniques to help you make a route choice and stick to it.
      The World Games 2021 in Birmingham will feature three orienteering events. It's going to take a LOT of volunteers to help and those with Orienteering experience will be in high demand.
