Today two instructors came to our school to teach us about, and how to play the sport, orienteering. It was really fun, we learnt what the symbols on the map mean, and the fastest ways to the controls.
To begin with orienteering is a sport, where you search for controls but, there are obstacles like buildings, hills, trees etc. You can play in singles or pairs, you might have to use compass if in a forest but, other than you should be able to use your surroundings to know where you are on the map.
Before we were able to go outside and actually try the sport, we saw a power point, then we had a quiz. After that we went outside and did a course that they set up, we had to run around a circle and find the correct control.
It sounds easy but, you have to be really patient because you can’t go back once you've passed it.
