Public Relations

This page contains links to various things that have been written about WPOC events and activities.  Some of these have been written by WPOC members, others are extracted from the press or TV.

 Club Brochure
The club brochure describes what orienteering is and what the club does.

This link leads to flyers/posters about upcoming events hosted by WPOC.  Some flyers focus on driving directions; others introduce orienteering.  The flyers may be printed and used to advertise the upcoming events or handed out to potential orienteers at a presentation or workshop.

The newsletter was published two or three times per year; it has not been published since 2011 .  It is a  collection of results from WPOC events and articles related to orienteering.  The newletter was sent electronically to club members in addition to being available on the Website.

 Orienteering, All Welcome
This award-winning 11-minute video was made in 1988.  It is an introduction to the sport of orienteering, discussing the importance of maps, the origins of the sport, competitive orienteering, and the elements that make orienteering accessible to most people of all ages.  The digitizing is a bit grainy; but you should find it well worth watching.

 TV Interview
In the Fall of 2010, Jim Wolfe was interviewed for Comcast Newmakers.  This link leads to that interview at YouTube.

Following are links to copies of several newspaper articles that were written about WPOC or its events.
