Lincoln Park

Thanks to everyone for coming out for a beautiful day in the city! Results are posted.

Give-Back Day a Success!
April 23, 2017

For our 3rd Give Back Day we had just 13 volunteers but we got a lot done! Mostly honeysuckle and also some buckthorn and multiflora rose. We may have gotten to the point where, after 3 Give Back Days, the ranger can justify a controlled burn, to get all the small regrowth left (and that should take care of the really nasty thorns). Many thanks to Alan, Tracy, Gordon, Dan, Anna, Kevin, Andrea, Raef, Steve, Chris, Lise, Matthew, Madeline, and Ranger Jacob. We'll post pictures on facebook soon!

Volunteers Needed
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, too!

Please check the 'volunteer' box on your registration form, and the meet director will be in contact with you.

About Orienteering

Everyone is welcome. No experience, no special clothes, and no competitive instinct are required. You do not have to run when orienteering—many experienced orienteers walk the course. But competitive running is also welcome. First-time orienteers are especially welcome—we will help you get started.

If you have questions about orienteering or need help finding the event location, e-mail the club secretary at secretary@chicago-orienteering.org.
