Fifteen units of Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venture Crew members gathered at the Manatoc Scout Reservation on September 19th to spend the day orienteering. Many started their day receiving instructions from NEOOC members Howard Montgomery, Andreas Johansson, Ken Lappin, and Dave Dysle. Multiple courses for scouts of all skill levels had been designed and set by Tim Feaser and Steve Wells. Registration of nearly 150 scouts, and additional public participants, was deftly handled by Registrar KathyJo Rufener and Starter/Timer Rob Donaldson.
From on of our course designers – Tim Feaser would like some feedback on his route choices as designed for the Manatoc event.
Orienteering is a sport that combines mental and physical excellence. An endurance sport with map and compass. Suitable for all ages and all levels (beginner, recreational orienteer – elite athlete, World Champion).
Here are the results from Scout Championships September 20, 2015.
Learn how to navigate with a compass easily and efficiently with the Silva 1-2-3 system. This video teaches you how to use a compass with a map to get to your desired location with ease. You will be guided through this easy to follow 3 step program by expert orienteers from Silva.
If you take cross country running, add a full nature experience and combine it with thrill & adventure – you get orienteering!
I volunteered to pick up a few controls after the Python Goat event a few weekend’s ago, and got my assignment for which controls to grab. They happened to be controls on the part of the course I didn’t run, so I took my time in navigating to each one, paying particular attention to the finer details of the map, or micro-orienteering, that I normally would during a race.
