If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can give it a try. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun. Fees are: $8 adult or $5 youth per map.  All participants must become club members for $5 per year.  Memberships are free for any first-time participants.
