Class Schedule



Welcome to MM 101!

Updated August 30, 2006

This seminar will be held at Heartland Conference Center, over the weekend of 8-10 September 2006, at Trask Lodge, which can house 14 people.  *** REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED ***

The cost per person will be $80, which includes lodging (Friday and Saturday nights) and meals (Saturday and Sunday). (An optional Friday dinner at 6:30 p.m. costing $9.50 is also available.) We have reserved a very nice meeting room - Cray Lounge - with air conditioning, a restroom, and high-speed Wi-Fi for Saturday and Sunday. So if you have a laptop and/or a GPS unit, bring them and their cables with you (we have a few club GPS “loaners”, and rental GPS units will be available for $10 from Heartland Center). 

A basic familiarity with OCAD 8 mapping software will be assumed; this is THE ESSENTIAL TOOL for creating Orienteering maps. An online “OCAD 101” tutorial is available - for those who have downloaded the free OCAD 8 Demo .
