Basic orienteering instruction is available for free at all orienteering events.
Basic registration fee is $7 for members of an orienteering organization, or $10 for non-members. A registration form, and waiver of liability form for participants under the age of 18, are required and available to download/print in advance of the event. See "Events" on the menu bar for the forms.
One color map is provided as part of the registration fee. Extra maps are $3 each.
Compass rental is $4.
Timing-stick (e-punch) rental is $4 if you don't have one. Each individual (or group) will need one timing-stick (e-punch).
When renting a compass or timing-stick, a driver's license or set of car keys must be provided when registering for the event.
Orienteering is a very safe sport and is suitable for just about anyone from age 8 to 80, adults must acknowledge that they are responsible for all minors accompanying them. Adults chaperoning or leading minors who are not their own children are responsible for these children. A waiver of liability form is required for participants under the age of 18 that requires a parent/guardian signature.
We recommend that an adult accompany all children on their courses, unless the children are experienced orienteers. Unaccompanied minors may enjoy the activity more if they head out on their courses in pairs or in small groups.
If you have child-related questions, please discuss them with the Event Director.
