The first orienteering workshop of this college year will take place on the 18th of November at the TU/e campus from 19:00 till 21:00. It will be one of the three sessions of orienteering, where each session will be held in a different environment. The orienteering can be done in pairs, however, if you would like to do it on your own that is also fine. This event will suit more experienced people as well as people that are new to the sport.
For people new to orienteering, the sport will be shortly explained below.
Orienteering is a sport that requires running and navigational skills using a map (and a compass) to find some points in arbitrary order. You will be given a set of coordinates which you will have to draw in the map yourself after which you will try to find the shortest route possible to cover as many points as possible in a given time frame. Due to the limited time, many people will not be able to cover all the points. For each point that you find you will score 1 point, however, if you finish after the given deadline, a point will be subtracted from your total score for every x minutes past the deadline.
It will be a lot of fun, so make sure to register!
