Orienteering Meet at Oak Mountain State Park, Tranquility Lake (BMX) area

October 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Read Time 1 Minutes

Vulcan Orienteering Club local meet will be at Oak Mountain State Park on Saturday, October 16th. Pre-registration is REQUIRED and the link can be found on VOC website (http://vulcanorienteering.org). The preregistration will be closed on Friday, October 16th at 6pm.
Beginners are welcome. We will provide beginner instructions. VOC website (Vulcan Orienteering Club (VOC) — Birmingham, Alabama — http://www.VulcanOrienteering.org contains all you need to know about registering for the meet this upcoming Saturday. Meet is open to everyone and offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced courses. There is a nominal fee of $8 per map. We use electronic punching, for which there is an additional $2 e-stick rental fee. Small groups may go out using a single map and e-stick. Each additional map for a group is $1. (I’d recommend everybody in the group should have a map and a compass). The best option is an orienteering baseplate compass. Please, ask meet organizers questions about rules, maps, courses, etc. before you start the course. We want everyone to have a safe and fun time in the woods and to learn/improve orienteering skills. More details about orienteering and VOC events/schedule/contact information are at the VOC web site http://vulcanorienteering.org.
