Zer-O Series - Laurelhurst Park

Laurelhurst Park, one of the most impressive city parks in the United States, is calling for you! Please join us for a mid-week break to test (or discover) your inner navigation, scavenger, and orienteering skills all in one event. (RSVP is required so that we have a map for you.)

Course Description:The course will showcase 16 controls and follow the park in a clockwise fashion. Distance: 1.9km (as the bird flies). You can walk, jog, or run it. Go solo, bring a friend, or bring your entourage.

Beginners: As at all CROC meets, beginners are welcome and highly encouraged to attend! Participants or the meet director will be happy to give you tips for getting started in the sport.

Volunteers: The course setter, Mike Kacmar, is looking for volunteers to hold beginners clinics.

Schedule: Starts are from 6 to 7pm, with course pick up commencing about 15 minutes after the last starter.

Where to Meet: We’ll meet at the picnic table in front of the dance studio on SE Oak between SE Cesar E. Chavez Blvd. and 37th Ave.

Post Event: We will have simple post-event snacks; a few of us will plan on Belmont Station after the event to support our local economy.

Cost: This event is free of charge, but you must RSVP so that we have a map for you.

RSVP: Please contact Mike Kacmar by 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 9th, so that we can print enough maps.

About the ZER-O Series: On all "ZER-O" dates (10th, 20th, 30th of the month) from May through September, CROC will offer practice courses -- some with added training exercises - in different Portland area parks. These are informal events, with no fees, no timing and no results posted.
