Bob has developed a systematic approach to teaching and coaching orienteering over a 30-plus year period. His in-depth and broad involvement and his intimate familiarity with the sport enabled him to apply a common, worldwide language to understanding the sport, based on a logical and systematic progression. His skills and techniques development scheme makes good sense; is easily taught and understood; and has the potential to revolutionize the instruction of orienteering far
beyond the borders of the USA.

In 2013, Bob co-authored, along with Chuck Ferguson, a comprehensive guide to the sport entitled “Discovering Orienteering”, which was published in cooperation with Orienteering USA. The royalties from the sale of this book will benefit American orienteering for decades to come. Bob has tirelessly dedicated himself to raising the level of proficiency across the US, and we are grateful that he has volunteered to lead this weekend’s course (which he and fellow QOC member Chuck Ferguson) have developed.
