Orienteering in Durham, NH, April 22, 11am to 2pm

Recommended Posts

Polish up your kayaking navigation with a land-based orienteering event this weekend: https://www.meetup.com/Up-North-Orienteers/events/293027506?utm_medium=email&utm_source=braze_canvas&utm_campaign=mmrk_alleng_event_announcement_prod_v7_en&utm_term=promo&utm_content=lp_meetup

This is a great chance for you to practice map and compass skills at the UNH campus. Like our charts, orienteering maps are very detailed, with north magnetic lines oriented parallel to the sides of the map. Although, generally, a competitive event, no need to race through the course. Study the detailed features noted in the key, and recognize these features as you course along your chosen path, employing trails, roads, and possibly shortcuts/bushwhack to arrive @ each control.

Check out the UNO website to get a feel for basics of orienteering:  https://upnoor.org
