More Winter Training!

Try your o skills at Mendon Ponds.  This course was used for World Orienteering Deaf Championships.  There are small plastic markers in the woods instead of controls.  Enjoy the lack of snow by doing some extra training in the wide open winter woods.  There are 2 courses out there now, take your pick.  Good luck!
