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.



Waterfall Glen
Forest Give Back Day
May 3, 10AM-1PM

Many many thanks to the May 3 Give Back Day participants:

Mike Reese, Chris Svoboda, Jeff Shaw, Michael, Erin & Josh Collins, Natalia Deconescu, Martin and Toni Schwetter, Rich Gaylord, Jeff Markus, Gordon Pearce, Lise Valentine, Chris Gladwin, Linda, Tim & Lisa True, Steve Beranek, Madeline McCarren, assisted by Justin Frederick from Dupage County Forest Preserve

We cleared at least an acre of honeysuckle, buckthorn, and multiflora rose at Waterfall Glen. We took before and after pictures, but the after pictures don't do it justice, as we had to leave the brush piles for forest preserve staff to burn or remove later. We finished the day with a picnic lunch. We've opened up some nice areas for orienteering!

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.
