What is E-punch/ E-stick?

Electronic punching (EP) is an electronic means of calculating the time it takes one to complete an orienteering course, and also checks that one has visited all of the proper controls in the correct order on the course. It is used in place of standard pin punching and paper punch cards. The following describes how to use EP on an orienteering course.

Can I bring kids?

Yes, children of all ages are welcome with adult supervision. Many parents will go out with their children or "shadow them" on a course. Shadowing is following along behind just to make sure the child does not run into trouble and to assist when necessary.

What are the types of courses and classes?

White (Basic) - 2-3 km or approximately 1-2 miles in length with very little climb and mostly on trails with very little route choice. Great for children 8-10 yrs or new orienteers. This is the course to take for a first experience. You NEED the time to learn how to interpret an orienteering map.

Yellow (Intermediate) - More decision making with routes still primarily along trails, but controls may be off trail. Length approx 3-4 km or approx 2 miles with increased climb. Great for beginning adults or children ages 10-14. Don't move up a level until you can win this course.
