Caldwell Park, Cincinnati City Park

Bobbi Sack, Event Director

        87 people took part in the Introduction to Orienteering at Caldwell
Nature Preserve on Sunday, March 16.  The event was sponsored jointly by
Cincinnati Parks and OCIN.  We were fortunate to have one of the first
beautiful, warm spring days, which contributed to a good time being had
by all.  Almost all participants were new to orienteering.  After they had
completed a course many expressed an interest in attending future orienteering

        This was primarily a family-oriented learning event.  Veteran OCIN
members gave instruction as people arrived.  There were games for kids
designed to teach map-reading skills, white and yellow courses, and a
wheelchair-accessible Trail-O.  Due to its character as a nature
preserve, the event was a "Nature-O", with notes on the points of
interest that were chosen as control sites.
