NAV COMP – Saturday 23 MAR 2019
Bishop Lake Complex in Brighton State Recreation Area
The Format: Each team will be given 8-10 points to plot and locate. The Rookie’s course will have 4-5 points pre-plotted points to locate and 4-5 points to plot & find.
The morning session will be map and compass only. In the afternoon you can use a GPS unit. Note: Even with a GPS unit you will still need to be able to read the map, as most units give you “as a drone flies” directions to the marker and the majority of us cannot walk on water, be it a swamp or a lake.
Uniform – ABUs/BDUs
Cost – TBD
