Posting for Ron / GPHXO:

Please join the Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club as we present two days of orienteering events at the Petrified Forest National Park in eastern Arizona.

We hope you'll take the opportunity to join us and discover this amazing national treasure.

I really enjoyed it in 2017, and I heard good things about the 2018 event. It's so runnable! And no yellow jackets! (Maybe some scorpions...?)

Unlike Australia, which has 11 of the 10 most dangerous snakes in the world, nothing in Arizona is trying to hurt you.

was looking at the registration page and here are my comments:

the information being asked to would-be participants is very "orienteering-centric", asking, for example, the primary O club, and the OUSA member ID. That, IMHO, is a repellent to folks outside the traditional O venues and communities. To make matters worse, the OUSA member ID field is labeled with a red asterisk, as to say it is mandatory.

Sherpes, this is the case for every event that uses the OUSA Event Register system, so your suggestions would be better suited to a separate Event Register-specific thread or comments submitted directly to OUSA.

None of the snakes in Australia have ever hurt me.

Yellowjackets sound pretty horrifying though, considering what they were originally designed for in Ant Man.
