Pre-race Intro - "All the basics you need to know"

If you have been orienteering in the city but never in the forest and can not join the weekend-long skills camp, consider coming out a little bit early to join a "all the basics you need to know" forest orienteering clinic. We will offer the 30-minute clinic at 11AM in advance of the noon race start. The clinic is free to race participants.
