37 Year Old Orienteering Map
Orienteering first got started around here back in the mid 1970s. A group called the Johnson County Outdoor Society put on a few events and some of their members eventually started PTOC in Kansas City. One of their main areas was Shawnee Mission Park.
The map above is Shawnee Mission Park, but it isn't the map that PTOC used. Back in the mid 1970s, PTOC used a black and white photocopy of the U.S.G.S. topo.
Since the USGS photocopies weren't so good to use, George M created his own map! Instead of using the map the organizers provided, George (and others who had his map) could copy the course onto their map. I think it was a distinct advantage. Above is the map that George made and the route is the course that Gene drew on it. I think you can see that it is very easy to read and no less detailed than a USGS topo.
