Forest Preserve Give-Back Day

Our 2nd annual Give Back Day was even better than the 1st! We had many more volunteers and Jacob Nordmann (Senior Ranger at Forest Preserve District of DuPage County) used power tools and herbicide to help us make a lasting impact.

Many thanks to our CAOC members and especially to the non-orienteers who just came out to support us and the forest:

Steve B, Liz B, Elise B, Mike C, Kevin C, Kevin C, Natalia D, Yan D, Dan D, Tom F, Leonid S, Matthew R, Cat, Rich G, Chris G, Tracy H, Benjamin H, Carl L, Bella M, Oivind N, Janet N, Henrik N, Magnus N, Maricel O, Gordon P, Mike R, Martin S, Toni S, Andreas S, Raef M, Jeremy B, Alex B, Madeline M, and from Wheeling JROTC: Matthew, Michael, Dylan, Edward, Dennis, Matt, Lauren.

T hank you! Looking forward to getting this section cleared all the way to the re-entrants in the next few sessions.

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.
