It’s time to start thinking about the summer! I guarantee you it *will* get hot, humid, and buggy.
The Summer Short Series will be back for another season of low-key orienteering training and socializing. I’m currently looking for hosts to put on events. Let me know if you’d be interested, with the date and location you want, or if you have questions about what hosting entails.
What hasn’t changed: price, $5 minimum donation, to go to the US Team. Timing: Saturdays, usually 4 pm, followed by optional group dining. I am always willing to entertain different times and days as well.
What has changed: uh, nothing, as far as I can tell.
Here’s the schedule so far (with other events you or other orienteers may be attending – use it as a guide to signing up). All listed dates are Saturdays.
