Erik's 2 h Score-O run
Bring your family, start a new hobby, and advance your compass/navigation skills. We have partnered with Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club to offer this FREE and fun orienteering course. It will be this Saturday, June 5 at Sundance Park. No experience necessary. Below is the official Orienteering USA map that was designed just for this program. Compasses will be available for loan but limited. Advance registration is required for all attending. For more details and to register visit: https://bit.ly/33SXpjX.
We tried an orienteering course on this busy day today. I think the whole Troop could benefit from this. We were out near Saguaro Lake. #aztroop531. Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club
Saw you at Lone Mountain today. Do I need to do anything in advance to participate on January 9?
I have prepared a video to explain Orienteering in Mingus Mountain Score-O.

My dad was an avid hunter. Several times when he got drawn for deer or elk he obtained topographical maps of the area for which he was drawn. His most recent hunt was 1993.
As the last survivor I've inherited these maps. I hate to just throw them away because they are part of Arizona history. If anyone would like them, they're free. Just message me. There are about 7 of them.
Has anyone found a good way to print 7.5' USGS quads on letter paper with a laser printer? I've tried it from the National Geographic site and the maps look horrible. Is there software that will do it?
Hey Everyone.

We've placed all the control markers and we're ready for the big event on Saturday, November 16. We hope you'll consider joining us at our Bomboy Mine event site, tucked into the foothills of the Superstition Mountains. Please remember to pre-register at gphxo.org. Pre-registration closes tonight. By pre-registering, you help us get an accurate count of participants so we know how many maps to print. We hope to see you there.
Do you offer orienteering classes or workshops?
Just FYI that I posted some Buckeye Hills / Robbins Butte photos on the event page -- https://www.facebook.com/events/807012772975329/?active_tab=discussion :-) --Brooke
Hello! When is the next beginner's event/class? Thanks in advance for any info:)
Awesome weekend at Fort Tuthill. Thanks to all who organized and staffed the event. My boys and I learned a lot and had a great time out in the forest.

Orienteering is a navigation sport in which participants use map and compass skills to locate pre-placed marker bags, or "controls", in the field as quickly as possible.

The Phoenix Orienteering Club is a group of folks who like to run around in the desert in the pursuit of the sport of orienteering. Orienteering is the sport of quickly and accurately navigating over terrain with only the assistance of a map and compass in order to locate pre-positioned control markers (or "bags"). It's like a poor man's adventure race or an adult's Easter egg hunt.

Flagstaff Navigation Games (Sat. 7/10) on hold: On Wed, June 23, the National Forest Service closed access to the entire Coconino National Forest, due to forest fire 🔥risk. At the same time, the City of Flagstaff also closed access trails to Observation Mesa and the surrounding Forest Service lands. For our July 10 event, we will post event details this coming week. On Sunday, July 4, we will make a final decision whether or not to cancel the July 10 event. Obviously, if lands surrounding Flagstaff are closed, we will not be able to hold the event. Stay tuned for additional information.

🧭 Orienteering essential: the whistle—not a toy, but a tool to signal 🚨event officials and others nearby that you need help. 🆘

In addition to bringing sunscreen 🧴, good hiking shoes 🥾, a compass 🧭, & water 💦, ‘always’ bring a whistle.

If you don’t have a whistle or if you want some cool swag, the pictured GPHXO whistle can be purchased for $1 at events.
