Umstead South Open Event Feb 4

Filed under: Latest News by Joseph on January 28th, 2018

The event is going on as planned.  We will have a fire in the shelter to warm up at the shelter, but you should plan to carry a warm jacket and your cell phone in case you suffer an injury. Hypothermia is a possibility if you are hurt – be prepared!

Umstead South is the venue for our next Open Orienteering Event where everyone is welcome.  We will have beginner through expert courses as well as an introductory class at 12:30.

The start is at the large shelter to the northwest of the parking area. Take I-40 to the Harrison Ave exit (287) and go north to the parking lot at the end of the road. You should see BOK signs pointing to the shelter.

If you are bringing a group of 5 or more people please preregister for this event NO LATER THAN Noon Friday February 2. Note that your groups will still need individual or team entry forms which you can fill in on site or in advance.

If you are bringing a bus for your group, please email
info@backwoodsok.org
by early Friday February 2 so I can let the park know what to expect.
