NAVIGATION NOODLE WITH THE LTC: 11/17/2018 - 11/18/2018

Let's improve our outdoors skill set by learning map and compass navigation and/or completing the I-level navigation check-out!  With any luck, our section will soon have some I-rated leaders so all of our members can enjoy some off-trail hikes!

This event is for Sierra Club leaders and for those in the process of becoming leaders. It's an opportunity for us to get together, learn, have fun, and get to know each other better.

Interested in becoming a Sierra Club leader?  Email Rolf at: rolfm (at) alumni.caltech.edu

The navigation noodle is taught by the Angeles Chapter's "Leadership Training Committee" (LTC).  The LTC offers several navigation events throughout the year.  Leaders from our section are promoting the November navigation noodle and several of our 20s & 30s leaders are planning to attend. 

-> Saturday's navigation noodle is for practice with instruction by expert navigators.

-> Sunday's navigation noodle is for I-level check-off or for additional practice. Must do homework before the navigation noodle for formal I-level check-off.

Details regarding the navigation noodle and sign-up instructions can be found at:

https://act.sierraclub.org/events/details?formcampaignid=7010Z000002739iQAA

This navigation noodle will be held at the Mission Creek Preserve and features free camping for participants!  

To sign up, email Robert Myers (rmmyers@yx.netcom.com) with your contact info, navigation experience/training, any WTC, leader rating, rideshare info.  Please tell Robert that you're with the 20s & 30s Section so that, hopefully, you can carpool with someone in our section.

If you want some practice before the navigation noodle on November 17th and 18th, the LTC is offering a free one-on-one navigation class on October 20th:
