Lake Needwood Orienteering Event This Sunday

Greg Lennon

Weather too hot for you? Come orienteer this Sunday, March 13 at Lake Needwood (near Rockville, MD), and enjoy the just-right-for-running temperatures that are predicted. Admittedly, it will be overcast and there's a chance of some sprinkles, but we do have a fine venue and eight orienteering courses to choose from (white through blue, including beige).

There will also be a training session conducted by course setter Mihai Sirbu at 1:30pm; no registration (or fee) is needed, and the topic will be route choice.

Otherwise, event timing is as usual: register between 10:45 - 1:15, start any time between 11 - 1:30 and be done before 3pm.

However, as Event Director Diana Todd definitely wants all of you to remember, Daylight Saving Time begins overnight between Saturday and Sunday this weekend, so make sure to set all your clocks forward by one hour before Sunday morning!
