Event Details:
The course will be a Score-O format. There will be no on-site event management, so choose a course suitable for your skill and level of fitness.

Registration:
To participate in the course there is a $10 fee for non-members or a $5.00 fee for members.  Interested in becoming a member?  You can do so here.  Fees can be paid through registration.

2) You will receive an email with links to the course map.
3) Download & print your map or maps.
4) Go out & orienteer.
5) Record your time and your point total.
6) Complete the form below to be included in the results.

To be included in the event results:
You have three hours to find as many controls as possible and return to the start location, earning the indicated point value for each control you find.  Please keep track of both your point total and your time if you plan to submit your results to the Club.  Have fun and be safe!   Complete this online form to enter your results. On the form you will enter your name, your score, and your time. That information will be put into the final results.

Course Notes:
Park vehicles at the Visitor’s Center, off of Genesee Road, at the start location indicated on the map.  Note that start and finish points are unmarked in the park; simply begin at the Visitor’s Center parking lot.  Note that the full map consists of two pages, so be sure to download and print both pages.  Page one shows the section of the park to the south of Genesee Road and page two shows the section north of Genesee, as well as the control descriptions.

Controls are flagged, but the flags may be located close to the ground or situated to avoid easy detection from a trail or road.  Each flag is tagged with the number indicated on the map; the number in parenthesis is the point value for that control.

In light of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, please follow all health guidelines regarding safety and social distancing while enjoying this outdoor activity.  It is a good idea to carry water, an emergency whistle, and a cell phone.  Make sure others know your plan for the day and don’t take unnecessary risks.  It is also a good idea to leave a copy of the map in your car or with a friend or relative, in case you find yourself requiring assistance.
