Join NEOOC’s mapping guru Bob Boltz and a few others to learn more about course design, and what it takes to prepare great, but appropriately challenging, maps for all participants – from beginner to advanced orienteers. Topics will include basic design principles, designing for the beginner and advanced orienteer, and how to check your design for trouble areas. You’ll learn how to use Purple Pen, a course design software, as part of the workshop.
Help us make it a great 2017 for NEOOC by volunteering some of your time running an event.
Most of the jobs are easy to learn, and there are plenty who would love to show you how.
