Ironwood Picnic Area Results -- 12/14/14
The previous day’s rain cleared up and left us with a cool, crisp sunny morning for running classic courses on the subtle terrain. John Little set White, Yellow, Orange, Green and Red courses to challenge runners of various abilities. Jessica Walker joined us for the first time and was well instructed by Nancy Coker, who stepped up to perform the beginner clinic. Nancy did an excellent job coaching and Jessica went on to complete 3 courses! [Photos by Yvonne Poe.]
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.
