George Minarik will lead a training class designed to help the (Orange Course) Intermediate orienteer acquire skills to be able to begin to successfully negotiate advanced courses. It may also be useful to some advanced orienteers who need some brush up on their O skills. . The prerequisites are that you have competed successfully at least 4 Orange courses and want to become more serious about the sport.
The 3 hours will include both discussion and field training.The discussion topics will include:
The field training will consist of three very short courses. The first will be a brisk narrated walk through a short course with the instructor. This will be followed by a practice course on which you will individually or in pairs practice your skills. There will be a final course that will simulate racing conditions.
Bring your orienteering attire, something to sit on, things to drink and maybe a snack. There will be a $3 charge for the maps. We will meet in the parking lot and then walk about a kilometer into the park.
The class will be limited to 16 people. Please e-mail George at minarik2earthlink.net by July 15 if you would like to attend.
