Description: On Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM, members of the Greater Phoenix Orienteering Club will present a FREE class teaching basic navigation concepts used in orienteering. The class is offered in one of the meeting rooms inside the City of Phoenix' Juniper Library on the south side of Union Hills Drive just east of 19th Avenue in North Phoenix. Participants will learn some of the important techniques involved in navigating with topographic maps and a compass. While GPS receivers provide an incredibly easy way for people to navigate, conditions sometimes make the GPS units unreliable or unusable (navigating in deep canyons, dead batteries, etc.) Navigation techniques used in orienteering are an invaluable complement to navigating with a GPS receiver.
