Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, November 04, 2004
Vacation!In a couple of hours I'll be sitting in an airplane on my way to California. I'll visit some in-laws and even get in a day of orienteering. I'm running the U.S. middle champs on Saturday. It should be fun.
I expect to have a few chances to update this page while I'm away from home. At the very least I can post some notes from my phone. I might not quite manage to post something every day.
Big in Japan?
Bjornar Valstad and Hanne Staff are beginning a series of articles about orienteering in Japan. Nearly everything on their web page is written in Norwegian, but they've promised that the Big in Japan series of articles will be translated to English also.
If you're planning to run the WOC, you'll want to read their articles. If you're planning to follow the WOC, you'll want to read their articles. In fact, if you're interested in orienteering at all, you'll want to read what they have to say.
Check out www.staff-valstad.com and look for the articles (they haven't yet posted anything beyond an introduction, which is in Norwegian only).
You can take a look at some photos and maps from their visit to Japan a few years ago. The article is entirely Norwegian, but the maps give you a good sense of the terrain. posted by Michael | 8:21 AM
