On Sunday, February 19th the Rochester Orienteering Club and the Cumming Nature Center will co-sponsor a “try orienteering “ event at the Cumming Nature Center near Naples, New York.   (It does not count towards the NYSSRA ski-o points series.)  Participants will receive a map with circles representing control points drawn on the the map. They will have 90 minutes to find as many control points as they can. Participants may find the controls on foot, skis or snowshoes depending on the weather conditions.  No special equipment is required and compasses will be available at registration for anyone who wants to borrow one. Instruction from Rochester Orienteering Club members will be available throughout the event.

Registration and starts will be from noon to 2:00PM. The course will close at 3:00PM. The Nordic Ski Patrol will be collecting donations for refreshments as part of a fundraiser for the organization.

A fee of $5 will be charged to cover participant’s insurance and a donation for Cumming Nature Center. Participants can register in advance on the Rochester Orienteering Club web site roc.us.orienteering.org or in person on the day of the event.
