Kentucky Camp Results -- 10/19/14
Kentucky Camp was beautiful to look at, with lush, tall grass (chest-high for me!) and fields of golden flowers, but it made for challenging cross-country travel and six DNFs among the twenty-five orienteers who thrashed their way around the four courses set by Larry Pedersen. Thanks, Larry, for all the hard work, including retrieving a few of the more remote controls.

TOC President Finishes Term End of October
As of October 31 of this year, David Follette will be stepping down as president of the Tucson Orienteering Club. His leadership has been a great experience for this organization, and he will be greatly missed!
We are looking for a new president who can carry the torch, help ensure that orienteering remains strong in Tucson and continue to build and improve the club. If you are interested, please get in touch with David or any of the board members. We look forward to hearing from you!
Meet Fees & Membership Changes for 2015
In an effort to keep up with inflation and changing times the Tucson Orienteering Club board of directors has approved an increase in meet fees (for the first time in 10 years). The increase in revenue will help us continue to replace aging equipment, reimburse volunteers for meet expenses, and develop maps for more areas around Tucson. Thank you for your continued participation in club events, and we look forward to seeing you at future events!
