Sports Basement Presentation
Date: (Sat.) Oct. 27, 2018
Location: 1875 S Bascom Ave, Suite 240, Campbell, CA
Type: BAOC member Tori Borish will give a 45–60-minute introduction to orienteering; the store will give 20% discount coupons to attendees
Here's the description for the presentation, which will begin at 11:00 AM:
- Orienteering is a running race that involves off-trail navigation with a detailed map and a compass where you have to decide the fastest way to navigate between a series of checkpoints. It can be done as a competitive sport or recreationally, as a walk in the woods involving some thought. Whether you’re looking for something fun to focus on while running or just want an excuse to visit more of the parks in the area, orienteering has something for you.
- We’ll go over a description of what orienteering is, explain the basics of understanding the very detailed maps, and give an idea of what orienteering is like in different kinds of terrain (both in the Bay Area and around the world).
- You’ll leave with a better understanding of what this sport is all about, why you might want to try it, what opportunities there are to try out orienteering around here, and what you need to know before going to an event.
BAOC members might want to attend to support Tori and to help answer questions after the presentation. You might even learn something new.
