If you're still on the fence about attending your first Orienteering USA sanctioned A-meet, but think you'd like to find out what all the excitement will be at the North American Orienteering Championships in NE Pennsylvania this October, be sure to avail yourself of the Orienteering USA rebate coupon and save 50%, or up to $20 off your registration fee!
The U.S.'s elite orienteers won the Bjorn Kjellstrom Cup back from the Canadians in 2010, and hope to keep it in the U.S. for the next two years. This year's event introduces the elite sprint relay on Sunday, which should make for exciting spectating after you complete your own sprint race in the morning. The Delaware Valley club always puts on a great event, and the woods at Delaware Water Gap are among the nicest in the east for orienteering.
There's also a rebate coupon for the Boggs Mountain, California (BAOC) event in early October, if you are planning a trip in that direction. Only one coupon can be used per orienteer, as after you've participated in an A-meet, you're no longer a first timer. :-) Check the Orienteering USA News for the coupon!
