Ok well there isn't any snow but the Orienteering Event is still on.
10am Sunday Feb 12, 2012 at the High School. Start Finish near the hockey rink.
There is a Novice Course and an Adventure Course, 10 flags in all. No compass or special skills required for the Novice course which should be able to be completed walking in 45 minutes or less. Adventure course may be doable in under an hour but this would require some effort and the ability to seek and find efficiently. All participants will be given a trail map of the Town Forest with approximate locations of all the flags.
Adventure Course Record stands at 1:45 which is the time it took Dana and I to set the flags tonight traveling together.
In addition to the regular prizes, anyone who completes the Adventure Course tomorrow during normal competition hours is entitled to one healthy portion or Rhubarb Crisp which can be redeemed after our Thursday night run from my house this week.
Please bring anti slip devices for your feet as it is really icy in the woods, especially on the trails.
