Dennis Wildfogel has been both an orienteer and a computer programmer for
over 15 years. His Training Tips have appeared in Orienteering North
America, the BAOC Bulletin, and many other club newsletters.
"Orienteer at Home" is a computer simulation of orienteering that runs on
either Windows or the Mac. A special course has been designed for the Sierra
2000 O-Fest, so you can see how you stack up against other orienteers when
running ability is not a factor. A practice course will be available, so you
can get used to the game before entering the competition. There are several
time periods that you can select to participate.
