Petrified Forest National Park -- Oct. 17-18
Please join the Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club as they present two days of orienteering events at the Petrified Forest National Park in eastern Arizona. On both Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18, 2015, they will offer a 4-hour event called a "Rogaine" in which participants navigate on foot using only a map and compass to different locations within a designated area. Participants are allowed to visit as few or as many locations as they can within the 4-hour time limit. The event organizers are still working on getting the permit, so please check back later for details!

Lincoln Park Remember-O Results -- 7/19/15
The coolish and cloudy weather made this meet a lot more fun. Our first event on this map since four ball fields were built showed enough area remains for a small orange course. Ludwig has honed map details, but we might want to consider having an official sprint map made from scratch of this city park if we want higher quality.
Catalina State Park Map Extension
Fun hikes! Field checking! New areas of the park! Please join the team!
This spring I started a project to extend our map of Catalina State Park. Ludwig Hill showed me how to use the Pima county data base to get elevation contours and with that and USGS aerial photographs I extended the existing map in the northwest corner of the park. Ludwig and Jeff Brodsky helped with field checking and we made some inroads to a final map.
