Orienteer This Sunday At Mason Neck
Sunday's temperatures are now flirting with approaching 70 degrees, so plan to come enjoy orienteering at Mason Neck State Park (near Lorton, VA), on one of Ken Walker's courses (white through blue) this Sunday, March 10.
Timing is standard - but don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour Saturday night for DST - so you can arrive to register between 10:45 - 1:15pm, start between 11 - 1:30pm and be back before 3pm. There is a park entrance fee at this State Park, and for those of you interested in checking out the visiting Northern Alaska tundra swans before or after your orienteering, check out the details on our event webpage.
