Orienteering is in its sixth year of struggling along in the Suncoast area of Florida. That is if you can call 188 participants at our last event struggling.
Well we do struggle to get sports news coverage. So I was pleased when the local weekly's sports reporter responded positively to my latest press release and interviewed a couple of cadets from the local high school JROTC team. He did a not bad job for a reporter who had never heard the word orienteering. You can see the article here. Also feel free to leave a (positive) comment there.

Thanks for sharing, Gord. Nice job.

A local reporter has done a feature on our New Year's Day event every Christmas for the last few years. This year's article just appeared yesterday. It made the front page of the "Life" section, below the fold.
