An Exciting Experience for IQ Members: Orienteering

At the end of this month, IQ members took active parts in the thirteenth orienteering held in a beautiful place Pingtan. Throughout the competition, all members helped each other and overcome difficulties together, enduring the test of mental and physical strength.

Though it’s raining sometimes during the competition, there were still gathering so many participants.

Orienteering is a group of sports that requires navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain whilst moving at speed. Participants are given a topographical map which they use to find control points and take a group photo to confirm.

So how could you find these control points in limited time? That’s why it’s a competition that requires mental and physical strength.

But I think IQ members have made full preparation for the contest. Even the control points were hidden and moreover were destroyed by the competitors, we still found them in the complicated environment. They were distributed on the stones, boats, bridges, trees, and others.

Anyway, there is nothing that you will fail to discover, and only there is something that you will fail to expect.

Could you imagine where we found the hidden control point?

Took a break and enjoyed the natural scenery and local food.

After all-day-long running, everyone was feeling exhausted. But it’s a fruitful travel to us. happiness and sense of satisfaction during the teamwork were the best thing we could ever have.
