Here’s how it works: -You’ll register on the GMARA website. -Shortly before the event officially opens, you’ll receive an email with map(s) and instructions. You’ll print those out. -Head to the Hinesburg Town Forest at any time from March 6th-14th to participate. -You’ll use the map (and highly recommended a compass) to navigate to orienteering flags in the forest. -Send us a picture of your results. -Feel successful about what you’ve achieved! A few notes: -If coming from outside of Vermont, you must follow the Vermont cross-state policy recommendations. -Hinesburg is being kind enough to let us on their land, please respect the forest! Be sure to leave no trace/pack out what you pack in! -Please keep your team size small. If more than four people, break up into two teams. -Bring masks and put them on if you’re near other people. You won’t even need to touch the checkpoint markers; you’ll just record a number onto your result sheet. -Respect anyone you meet on the trail. -For those who did the recent Catamount Winter Adventure, be ready for some elevation! Hineburg is hilly!
