highres 479153721 PhHztS.tmp Orienteering Meet at Oak Mountain State Park, Tranquility Lake (BMX) area

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.
