Orienteering 1:00:00 
Today was the day! The first official/unofficial event of Grizzly Orienteering at Pattee Canyon. We had an amazing crew of helpers: Will helped hang flags; Tyra, Siri, and Caroline provided awesome beginner instruction; Ashley did a shift at the start; Darrell and MB did start and finish; Alden Wright of the Rocky Mountaineers helped with publicity; GSwede made the base map; and Alli coordinated the setup of the entire thing, helped make the event flyer, got all the snacks and Covid provisions, and made sure that everything ran smoothly.
I typically stress out when I am putting on events, but thanks to our awesome crew, I did not feel stressed at all during the day. We staggered arrival times to avoid any semblance of crowding, and it worked really well. We ended up with 22 beginners, 6 experienced orienteers, and 8 family members for a total of 36 orienteers. Very pleased.
We had no punching - we can think about adding that once we are more established and have less Covid. We did offer UsynligO as an option, and one of the beginners successfully used it!
A full update with maps and results coming soon.
