Whats cell phone orienteering?
Its where the runner and navigator are on the phone together, runner has compass and SI but no map, navigator has a copy of the course and is telling runner what to do, runner is telling navigator what he/she sees
YOU SHOULD DO IT W ME IF UR NOT BUSY
Sick! I'll do it with you if Im here! not sure what my plans are yet though
Might it be a Skype call? You could get a group of people helping you out!
PRAISE i just saw this and thought it wasnt gonna work
possibly? might be confusing but also might be fun
If you guys both wanna do it I'll text you about it later today but i gotta go to school now :/
CascadeOC has dabbled with cell phone orienteering (aka "mobile-o") in the past, most notably with our annual MoboGoGlobo!
junior fundraisers from 2009-2011.
Wow I didn't know about this! Looks like it was a success too.
It was, but it wasn't.
We raised money, which was great, of course. But we could have raised more money per organizational-hour had we done something different (eg: just offered another regular event with proceeds to WIOL).
That's one hesitation I have before I'd organize another one. That, and the fact that it's too easy to game the system now (take a photo of the map and text it). The technology was limited enough in 2009-2011 where that really wasn't a concern. And that I've thrown my organizational weight into the Choose Your Adventure Series (which started in 2011), and SART.
Those are some fair points. I wonder if we could put on a WIOL student-run meet with proceeds to WIOL? Or even Caroline and I could do a JNT-member run meet with a portion of proceeds to JNT?
