Hello, my name is Tom Wells, I am a deaf orienteering athlete.

First, I want to say "Thank You, Thank You" to Patti Mace.  

She was responsible for the USA Deaf Orienteering NSO (National Sport Organization) for the past 12 years.  

She worked hard and was very active to make deaf orienteering become successful.  

She recently decided to retire.  The leadership role was given to me.  It is a big honor to follow in her footsteps.  

Her hard work will be continued by me.  

Again I thank Patti and ask you to join me in congratulating her for a great job.

Hello, we are now practicing social distancing because of the coronavirus.  

Our club set controls using a map and streamers in the woods.  I am alone in the forest. 

We print the map at home and come anytime to navigate through the forest by ourselves. 

We are practicing social distancing plus keeping up with our training for orienteering.
