CROC Member Training, Spring Series
Build fitness and sharpen your navigating skills (or just have fun) at these training events. Orienteering courses will often focus on a particular skill such as close map-reading, remembering what you've seen on the map, and keeping track of where you are.
The training series is for club members only, who want to improve their orienteering skills, improve fitness and do some socializing. There is no cost for members for these informal events. Results will not be posted, but if you want to keep track of your time, bring a timing device and a scoring sheet will be available.
Following contours-Pier Park, North Portland
This training focus is on Contours. Paths and trails will not be on the map. There are three acts: 1) Getting Unlost; 2) Following a Contour Line; and 3) Line-O. Some of the exercises will be in pairs or threes; mixed skill level is fine. Bring a partner or find one at the training.
Location: Pier Park, meet north of the swimming pool, at St. Johns Avenue and James Street.
Start: 10:00 a.m. Note: 10:05 mass start! Come on time.
