Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Mapping clinicI spent a couple of hours at the PTOC mapping clinic this afternoon. PTOC is hosting a weekend mapping course and I was responsible for a short session on fieldchecking. It was fun.
My teaching theory was - "learn by doing." So we spent a little time indoors, preparing a map board and talking about how to start a fieldchecking project, then we went outside. The participants spent a bit over an hour fieldchecking.
As the participants walked around mapping trails, contours, buildings and a strange round labyrinth, Gene and I touched bases with them, to see how things were going and answer any questions.
I left the session feeling pretty good about how it went.
After the mapping class, I went for a short run. I came across an old cemetery and took a couple of snapshots.
