WPOC worked Rebekah Gaber, a girl scout working on her silver award project to set up the permanent orienteering courses in 2017. There are two courses: one for beginners and one at the novice level. Each course is on a separate map with the control descriptions super-imposed on the maps. These are cross-country courses; that is, the sequence of controls to visit is specified. The Beginner course has six controls with the control markers labeled A thru F. The Novice course has 9 controls with the control markers labeled 1 through 9. Both courses use the honor system to determine if someone has completed a course. There are no codes to write or punches to make.
