On Saturday, September 17, 2005 I will host a GPS-O event at Highland Park Recreational Center with start times from Noon to 2:00 pm.

GPS-O Highland Park - '05

A GPS-O is like an orienteering event except that you use your GPS instead of using a compass. The event will consist of a course or courses made up of flags (controls) that are placed out in the woods or in the park. The map that you will receive for the event will have trails, buildings, vegetation, and contour lines clearly marked. You will also receive a list of coordinates and some clues that will help you locate the flags. Using your GPS, the clue sheet, and the map, you can make your way around the course competing to achieve the fastest time to find all controls. Of course, you don't have to compete, you can simply go to have an afternoon of fun with other GeoCachers!

If you're planning on attending the meet, please post a note indicating your intentions so that I will be able to print up enough maps to go around.

Hope to see you there!
