CSU Spring Training Day

Organizer: Alex Jospe

The successful CSU training day will happen on April 6th, 2015. Come get your orienteering skills back up to snuff before the spring season!

The day will consist of a series of short training exercises, each with an emphasis on different aspects of orienteering. This is a great way to hone your navigation technique, in a friendly environment.

Your entry fee covers the cost of all maps for the day. There will be several different exercises, and then a fun team relay at 1pm. Cost is $10, $8 for juniors. Do as many or as few of the exercises that you want. Instruction for each exercise will be available.

E-punching will be used.

Start location will be announced once we have the permit. Back up location is Lynn Woods.

Come around 10, stay as long as you'd like, but the camp will wrap up after the relay at 1pm. There will be a mass-start team relay at 1pm, as one of the trainings!
