Two days of perfect spring weather for orienteering.  Coach Brent Langbakk designed a coaching program that focussed on various orienteering techniques.  Special instruction was provided to the six assistant coaches who then worked with the athletes in small groups.  Two events: a sprint and middle were also included in the weekend.
