Some members of the Great Basin K9 Search and Rescue are planning to attend the Jordan River event to practice their navigation skills. After the orienteering event, they volunteered to demonstrate what their dogs are capable of doing. It'll be very exciting to see them and their K9 team members in action. However, if they are called on a search and rescue mission, the demo will be postponed.

August 4, 2016

Maps and courses are ready for the score orienteering event on August 13. The course is for all orienteering skills and levels.

July 21, 2016

Field work and course design is in progress for the Jordan River score orienteering event scheduled for Saturday, August 13. There will be one course for all orienteering levels - new comers to advanced. Last year, several advanced orienteers punched all controls under the one hour limit - probably not challenging enough for them. So this year, more controls have been added in hopes to make it more challenging. Like last year, controls easier to find and closer to the start will have higher points. Controls further away or harder to find will have lower points. This approach sort of levels the playing field giving less advanced orienteers a chance to earn lots of points while challenging advanced orienteers. 

The area is pretty level without much elevation. For some, an issue at the area is foxtails that burrow into socks and shoes. If you are bringing your dog, take preventative measures. For yourself, buy or build gaitors, bring duct tape to cover exposed mesh areas of your socks/shoes, or wear older socks/shoes. If using duct tape, be sure to not tape over bare skin.

Search online about score orienteering for details and strategies.

Thanks to Bob Huebner who improved the map and added a map legend that I omitted last year.

Jordan River area

July 20, 2016

More details about the Jordan River event are forthcoming but it'll be a Score Orienteering event with one, maybe two mass start times. Score orienteering is where many controls are placed throughout the area, each having a point value determined by its distance from the start/finish or its technical difficulty. Participants have one hour to find as many controls to earn as large a point value as possible. There's a point penalty for being over-time of 2.5 points. Highest score wins! For reference, here's results from the score orienteering event held last year.

Event Date: Saturday, August 13, 2016 around 10:00 AM.
