Orienteering Skills Workshop at West Point's Lake Frederick.
Friday 27 Sep 2013 through Sunday 29 Sep 2013
The United States Military Academy Orienteering Team will host a weekend workshop in order to teach the fundamentals of Orienteering. This workshop can be used by scouts to complete the majority of the Orienteering Merit Badge requirements. The team will have on site a certified Orienteering Merit Badge Counselor who can sign off on completed requirements. The remaining requirements can be completed within the troop after 29 SEP and signed off by our counselor at a later date. Upon finishing the clinic, scouts will have completed tasks 1-7 of the Merit Badge requirements while getting experience on white, yellow, and orange level courses. This weekend is sure to be exciting for all participating. All questions and comments can be sent to the Cadet in Charge (CIC), CDT Mark McCormick at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Officer in Charge (OIC), COL Mike Hendricks. We encourage any and all questions pertaining to the weekend's activities, and will continue to update the website with information.

Registration forms attached in this email need to be filled out and returned to CDT McCormick no later than 1 September, but we request scout leaders to send an email as early as possible to confirm their troops attendance and approximate numbers.
