New to Orienteering?

You'll find lots of information on the Orienteering USA website.

Here is an excellent intro video from the Irish Orienteering Association.

Note that the color codes of orienteering courses, explained at 7:55, differ from the course colors used in the U.S.

I sprinted to the first control/flag and stuck my finger thing in it. Yes! One down, 10 to go. I really got the hang of it after the first control. I was orienteering with my family and I was on a Yellow. I got the time of 68 minutes and something seconds. After that I challenged my brother to a White. And he accepted. He won by a measly 1 minute and 30 seconds. Life is unfair.
