The Buffalo Orienteering Club Annual Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 20 at Stohrer’s Lodge in Emery Park. All club members and 2023 map hike participants are invited to attend and are encouraged to bring a guest or two who would like to learn more about orienteering and the club.

We will begin at noon with lunch. Hot dogs and veggie burgers are provided. We ask that you bring a side dish, snack or dessert to share. Bring your own beverage of your choice.

Following lunch, the meeting will last about 30 minutes and include:

  • Welcome & President’s report
  • Treasurer’s report
  • 2023 Map Hikes finishers recognition & prize drawing
  • 2024/2025 Board & Officers election

All 2023 Map Hike finishers will be entered into a drawing to receive one of two $25 gift cards from Gear For Adventure. (One entry for each park card received. Must be present to win.)

After the meeting we will have the opportunity to try out the new permanent orienteering course at Emery Park. 2024 Map Hike kits will also be available for sale.

Some special events may charge more, such as the Ellicottville Adventure Run.
