Bones Adventure Club event #4 will be a night orienteering run in the foothills of Mount Diablo.  The event will be ROGAINE-style, where each team of 1-4 persons will try to find as many controls as possible within 90 minutes, on foot. 

This is a low-key "training" event, with minimal costs (~$10 for map).
