Tucson Orienteering Club has approved Lois Kimminau as its new treasurer.  The treasurer's responsibilities include maintaining our club bank account, paying club bills, ensuring that our volunteers receive their reimbursements, and keeping our finances in order year-to-year.  Lois will be replacing Jeff Berringer, who we would like to thank for his many years of dedicated service to the club as the previous treasurer.
 
Thank you very much, Lois, and we are looking forward to working with you!

The Catalina State Park map is growing a little bigger.  This winter Leif Lundquist and Ludwig Hill are doing the mapping that will expand the size of the existing orienteering map by about one square kilometer.

The Tucson Orienteering Club has changed the form it uses for registration at orienteering events.  The new forms incorporate recent changes recommended by our parent organization, Orienteering USA.  The old forms are no longer valid, and any supplies found should be thrown out and replaced with the new forms (dated 9/17/13).  This new form may be downloaded for printing from our Documents, Guides, and Forms page.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Now that summer is officially here, remember to keep hydrated, protect your skin from the sun, and watch out for venomous snakes.

Snake Control"As they say in the Beginner's Clinic: 'Each control marker has a device that will punch a distinctive set of holes in your score card.'" (Copied from our February 1985 issue of the club newsletter)

We had a great turnout on Saturday (May 4th) at Catalina State Park's 30th Anniversary Celebration!

As many of you know from watching the "soot devils" blowing through the seared and blackened landscape at our Greaterville orienteering event two years ago, the northwest corner of our Greaterville/Kentucky Camp map area was torched by wildfires in late Spring 2011.  Almost two years later, on a pleasant, sunny Sunday in late March 2013, five TOC mappers joined forces to field check this changed landscape and try to make the map right again.
