ORIENTEERING — The Eastern Washington Orienteering Club's first event of 2014 is set for Saturday, Feb. 22, at Manito Park (18th and Grand) in Spokane.

This is a great map, compass and exercise activity for the whole family. Using maps and compass, you must find your way to check points around the park.  Top orienteers will run the course.  Others can map it a group problem-solving trek.

Registration starts at 10 a.m. The event starts at noon. 

Cost: $5 for anyone on the beginner course and for members on any course and $7 for nonmembers on advanced courses; $3 for each additional map for a group or family.  

Info: John Harbuck, (208) 263-9894; John Beck, (509) 838-7078, or e-mail beck@gem.gonzaga.edu.
