The North Texas Orienteering Association is holding an event this Saturday called a ‘Score O” for National Orienteering Day, which is a big, fun event, and they expect to have up to 300 different folks do orienteering, some beginners, others highly skilled, but all having fun on various courses.
Here is the link to the schedule: http://ntoa.com/events/
If we participate, we can do so as a Group (The Troops of Saint George) where we can learn to do orienteering and go on a short fun beginners course as a troop. This will take place from 9 am to 1 pm at Gateway Park in Fort Worth and the price is $14 for the entire troop. I will cover that cost, so it is no cost to the families that want to participate. They just have to show up on time. So,here is what I propose:
This Saturday, feast of the Arch Angels, Sept 29:
7:00 am Mass: The Carmel of the Infant of Prague and Saint Joseph at 600 Flowers Ave, Dallas, TX 75211 (optional, but recommended!) then travel to Gateway Park.
9:00: Meet at Gateway Park in Fort Worth. Map https://goo.gl/maps/
9:15: Beginners Training in Orienteering.
