Organizer: Linda Hildebrandt (Event Director)


Event Details:

When the weather is not great for orienteering, this is the perfect time to practice the mental aspects of orienteering. Welcome to the first Victoria Orienteering Club - Train the Brain Session! Our intent is to conduct this training via Zoom, so it is accessible to all VicO members. Note: Some past experience in orienteering is highly recommended. All levels of orienteers can participate. The idea is to have fun, socialize and practice the mental aspects of our favourite sport.

Using a series of games, challenges, and a variety of orienteering maps, we will discuss and practice the following:

  • IOF symbols, map symbols
  • reading contours
  • orienteering strategies such as best route choice, selecting attack points, etc

If you participated in the recent Downtown Photo O from December, we will also do a quick recap of results and have a look at best routes as captured by MapRunF and RouteGadget.

When: Thursday 13 January, 7 pm to 8:30 pm

Location: Virtual over Zoom (Zoom link will be emailed upon registration)

Participation by computer (not iphone, ipad) is recommended so you can look at all the visuals and participate in the quizzes, etc, and also potentially do some fun team competition events using the break-out rooms.

This event is open to all Victoria Orienteering Members.
