Winterfest at Mendon Ponds Sunday Jan 13th
Come on out to Winterfest at Mendon Ponds Park this Sunday. There will be loads of activities to enjoy throughout the park! There is more information on everything that is happening that day at https://www2.monroecounty.gov/parks-winterfest.
Rochester Orienteering Club will be hosting orienteering on skis or snowshoes, but if the weather is not cooperative we will orienteer on foot. The orienteering is free for beginners and instruction will be provided. Only a beginner course will be offered. The course opens at 10 am. Start anytime between 10 am and 1 pm. We will be starting from Hopkins Point Lodge, where there will be a warming fire and yummy refreshments. Come dressed for the weather, bring your skis or snowshoes, and we will provide you with a compass and all you need to get started.
We hope to see you there!
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. Good luck!
