Club Facebook Page and Group

The club now has an open Facebook page for events and other news.  Like the page to get Facebook updates about club, orienteering and outdoor happenings.  The previous club Facebook group has been converted to a group that will focus on discussions of the map hikes.  As Rob says on a post in the group, " This group can be used to report missing controls, hazards, and other information by anyone participating in a Map Hike. Club volunteers monitor posts and answer questions about the courses. "  Map hike participants can check out that group for the latest map hike news.
