Free event – Please RSVP by noon, Wednesday, January 5, so we can know how many copies of maps to bring.
Saturday Meeting at Arbor Hills Nature Reserve in Plano. Lt. Zipper will give us a crash course in orienteering to prepare for the Jan 21-23 camp.
That is the only way for you to get the most of the exciting upcoming camp: the North Texas Orienteering LBJ Dill0-Goat Competition on 01/22.
We will meet at the playground at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve https://goo.gl/maps/VPQF65BGQFLRirf2A at 1 PM. Lt. Zipper will be there early to set up the course. Anyone that gets there early is welcome to play and hang out together.
Around 1 PM we will start the training. We will move to the pavilion if it is available (https://goo.gl/maps/8ydyUXWxd3VKXc7t6) .
We will discuss how to use a compass and read a map (the attached map and legend).
We will then walk the first 3 points of the yellow course as a group. After that, groups will split up to different parts of the yellow course so that the boys will have a chance to work independently. We will meet back up at the playground and have a Q&A session there to review what the boys learned independently.
See you there.
