About the Event

Two 2.5 hour orienteering classes for beginner orienteers will be held by Dave Linthicum (Orienteer Kansas) on an enlarged part of our Bear Wallow O' map Sunday July 7 and Wed. July 10, both 8:15 a.m. to ~11 a.m. (or later if you want to hang around orienteering to a dozen extra markers.)  Maps will be provided,

Before July 3 email him at DaveLinthicum (at) earthlink (dot) net if interested in either date (or have questions) since he's got half a dozen students already (from elsewhere in the US, here for a nature conference) and can only fit in another half dozen (each day).  After then, text or call him at 443-223-6714.

Dave says the group will do 1.5 hours at a slow pace, with a map walk (symbols, orienting, Route O', contours, more).  Then an option to do some actual orienteering.  Total of not much over a mile, with 250 feet of climb.  Age 18+ only.

Just before the Palisades Visitor Center on the Mt. Lemmon Hwy, look on the right for the Bigelow Trailhead lot  (75 minutes from downtown.)  Free parking, vault toilet.  Dave guarantees 20° cooler than Tucson, but bring water and sun protection.  The area is most forested, and one stop will have a great view of the city from over 8,000 feet (dust storms permitting!)
