Beginner Clinic Success (register for a meet)

A word of welcome to all the new orienteers who attended our beginner’s clinic. If this is your first time on our website and you’d like to register for our meet at Mendon Ponds on Sunday please click on the gray box to the left. That will take you to our online registration. But first, if you’ll take a moment to log in and create a profile, the site will remember your information from meet to meet.  You can, but are not required to pay when you register. We take only cash and checks at our meets.

Not sure if you’re attending? Go ahead and register anyway. There’s no penalty for not showing up. And if you’re confused by any of the questions (what’s an SI Card?) just leave them blank for now. You will have to choose a course, but you won’t be locked in to that choice. There will be volunteers on hand to answer questions and help you get started when you arrive.
