Glide the Slide Orienteering Results

Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Earthquake Park

Earthquake Park was the site for this week’s evening of fun and competative orienteering put on by the Arctic Orienteering Club. More than 130 people participated in navigating five courses ranging from easy to challenging. Everyone managed to steer clear, and most got glimpses of, the Moose cow with her newborn calf in the park. Ian Moore nudged out Toby Schwörer for first place in the advanced Red course.

Brian Durrell was the meet director, assisted by Heidi Borson in setting the course and Sandy Durrell at the start area.
