No Experience Necessary
It takes a lot of volunteers to put on each orienteering
meet, but it doesn't take a lot of time to be a volunteer.
Volunteers are needed to help with registration, results,
control pickup, etc. The typical time commitment is 1 to 1.5
hours. We'll show you everything you need to know to help
out. Plus, you'll still have time to participate in the orienteering.
All volunteers will be eligible for the end-of-year banquet,
Please check the 'volunteer' box on your registration form,
and the meet director will be in contact with you.
Everyone is welcome. No experience, no special clothes, and no competitive instinct are required. You do not have to run when orienteeringmany experienced orienteers walk the course. But competitive running is also welcome. First-time orienteers are especially welcomewe will help you get started.
If you have questions about orienteering or need help finding the
event location, e-mail the club secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
