What is Orienteering? It's like a treasure hunt in the woods using a map to find controls (box shaped flags hanging from trees). We usually have 3 courses: White/easy ~2 miles all controls on trails, Yellow/medium ~3 miles controls can be seen from trail, and Orange-Blue/hard ~4-5 miles with all controls hidden in the woods. You can compete as an individual or a team (usually 2-3 people). For more info, see our Fact Sheet or email Glen (firstname.lastname@example.org).

CAUMSETT STATE PARK
3 Score-Os - 1, 2, & 3 hours, all ending at 2pm, (and maybe a White course), refreshments & awards to follow to wrap up the spring season.
In a Score-O, you try and get as many points as you can. 2 penalty points for every minute over the time allotted. The harder and further the control, the more points.
Please pre-register with Glen at email@example.com or text 516-477-0852 by the day before to get a start time and then arrive a half-hour early to register, plan your route, and ask questions.

SUNKEN MEADOW STATE PARK
We had great weather (sunny, about 60 degrees, little wind) for our first meet of the spring season. Alex designed 4 nice courses. Congrats to Chris for a fast time on the Green course (so fast, I couldn't get a picture) and Mark Van Loon on the Orange course.
Due to COVID-19 we are introducing permanent courses.
