SW Spring Meet at Catalina State Park -- Feb. 21-22
Orienteering in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona!
Welcome to the 2015 Southwest Spring B-Meet, with two days of orienteering near Tucson! Saturday morning we’ll kick off with Long courses. Sunday we’ll shorten the distances some, but still offer some challenging Classic courses. Each day we’ll offer seven classes from beginner’s White to expert’s Blue.
As a free bonus on Saturday evening you’ll get the chance to practice your Night-O skills on a 4-5 km training course set up by Glenn Haselfeld from our sister club in Phoenix. Bring your Night-O lamp!
Cat Mountain Results -- 1/18/15
[Revision: See the meet report at the end of this article.]
The 2015 Cat Mountain orienteering meet is now in the books and I think it can be called a great success! We were treated to clear blue skies, calm winds and above average temperatures which made for ideal conditions. People came from far and wide for the event.
Key TOC Members Made It Happen in 2014
As we transition into the new year it is time to reflect on another successful year of putting on fun-filled orienteering events. It coudn't have happened without the time and sweat donated by a certain dedicated and generous group of TOC club members. These awesome folks put on nine orienteering meets last year, one of which was a regional event.
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!
How You Can Help Make Our Events Happen!
The Tucson Orienteering Club is a non-profit organization which depends on member-volunteers who give a whole lot of their time behind the scenes working to run the club, make the maps, get the permits, set courses, and run the meets that you enjoy. If you don't yet feel ready or have the time to take on any of these key volunteer activities yourself, you can still become a valuable part of making our events happen just by offering to help the meet director during a small part of the time that you show up for the event.
