We'd like to invite you to join us as we return to our Reach-11 event site. On Saturday, April 14, we're offering free orienteering training and practice courses starting from the parking lot next to Horse Lover's Park at the Reach-11 Recreation Area. While this area does not offer any climbs or descents, there are plenty of navigation challenges in the desert terrain in this park located in North Phoenix. We hope you'll take the time to join us to practice your navigation skills.

Pre-Registration
Pre-Registration is open until Friday, April 13th at 11:59 PM. After the pre-registration closes, you can still try your luck and register on-site. We will have pre-printed maps for everyone who pre-registers. We cannot guarantee a map for those who register on-site.

Pre-registration does not obligate you to attend. It simply helps us plan for an estimated number of participants. Please note the pre-registration deadline. After the deadline passes, you'll have to register on-site.

Pre-registration allows us to save on printing costs by not printing too many maps. You can save registration time and guarantee yourself a map be pre-registering.

What to bring:
- Whistle (Mandatory for all. Available for $1)
- Compass (Mandatory for all. Available to rent for $1)
- Water bottle(s). (There will be water at the start/finish . However, as we could be out in the field for up to three hours, you may also want to bring your own water bottles or a camelback.)
- Sunscreen, hat, sturdy shoes
- Long pants are recommended (scrub brush and cactus)
