Open event at Raven Rock February 16, 2020

Filed under: Latest News by ian.shields on February 10th, 2020

We will have an open event at Raven Rock State Park on February 16 starting at noon. All are welcome. You will need to register at the BOK store by 5pm Friday February 14 as we are also working the JROTC event on February 15 and will have limited time to get maps printed.

There will only be a few extra maps. Registrations received after 6pm Saturday Feb 15 are not guaranteed a map!

If you are new to orienteering, please see our newcomer page.

The event starts at noon. We will have a beginners class at 12:30 (come by 12:15 to pick up your map before the class). Last starts at 2pm. Everybody must finish by 3pm.

We will have all regular courses from beginner to expert, White through Red.

  • White 1.6km 9 controls
  • Yellow 2.9km 8 controls (see note below)
  • Orange 3.6km 10 controls
  • Brown 3.6km 9 controls
  • Green 5.7km 14 controls
  • Red 6.6km 17 controls

Note that yellow will use linear features such as streams, spurs and reentrants as well as trails. Look for additional course notes on Sunday.

We have a fillable PDF entry form which you can save on your computer and print to bring with you to the event to save some time at registration. You can always find links to these in “BOK Information” links on the right of several BOK pages.

As always, help with control pick-up would be greatly appreciated.
