Orienteering Event THIS SATURDAY!

Posted on Apr 10 2015 - 1:26pm

TFC Scouts, please join us for a TFC orienteering activity this Saturday (Sat, Apr 11) at White Rock Lake. The First Class requirement states: “Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.).”  We’ll need some senior scouts to volunteer to help out (hello, Instructors and Guides!).  Here is the schedule: 7:30 Set up, 8:00 - 8:30 scouts arrive: donut / kolache breakfast, 8:30 TFC program (picnic tables are available), 9:00 - 10:30 orienteering course.  The place I am thinking is has a creek, a tree bridge, as well as some other features the boys can orient around. It's a fun park for the Scouts!  If you plan to attend, please register by using the Event Registration feature on the right side of this website.  And don't forget your compass - you'll need it!

We will meet at the corner of Williamson Road & Lawther near White Rock Lake. See map and get directions here: http://goo.gl/HDfSZF
Program agenda: 1. TFC Requirement 2: Using a map and compass, complete an orienteering course that covers at least one mile and requires measuring the height and/or width of designated items (tree, tower, canyon, ditch, etc.).
8:00 meet and donuts
8:15 orienteering instruction & stride determination
8:30 orientation course (1mi)
10:30 book sign off
Equipment needed:
- Compass
- Class A or B uniform
- Scout handbook / pencil

Scouts, this is a tough requirement to get satisfied only because it isn’t taught that often within the troop.  If you need it, please make every effort to attend to earn the sign-off. It is a very fun event.
