March Forum: Alternative Course Formats

Are you looking for new ideas to spice up your next local event? Next month’s Orienteering USA forum topic will feature Alternative Course formats and will take place on Tuesday evening, March 12th at 8:30pm EST.

Mary Jones from Orienteer Kansas will present some ideas from their Explorer course which is offered at all of their regular events and is designed as an introduction to orienteering for beginners of all ages. Joseph Huberman from Backwoods Orienteering Klub will discuss the Fox Chase format that is used at some of their events.

We are still looking for a couple more folks to round out the panel so if you have a unique twist on the standard course formats that you’d like to share with the orienteering community, please contact Joseph Huberman @

Everyone including organizers and participants is encouraged to join the discussion in two weeks on Google Meet at You can catch previous monthly forums you may have missed over on the Orienteering USA YouTube Channel.
