Blue skies for orienteering open house!

We enjoyed clear skies, sun, and the company of an enthusiastic crowd of first timers at our Fall Open House on the SLU Orienteering Course today. Temps were right around freezing, but the sun and activity kept the chill out while the group navigated to the first 10 (of 28) control points on the course. This time of year is great for trying the sport out for the first time, with trees bare and visibility high in the woods.
