Registration for this event has closed

On Sunday, August 22 we will have an orienteering event at Horton Grove Nature Preserve in Bahama, NC.  The event is open to advanced orienteers – those who have successfully completed an orange, brown, green, or red course.  Check-in at the main parking lot (GPS coordinates = 36.142298, -78.843700) to receive your map.  Please note that Horton Grove has no bathroom facilities, running water, or electricity. Dogs are permitted, but must be leashed at all times. 

The following procedures that will implement to minimize potential transmission of the Covid virus.

1.  When you register, you must select a specific 30 minute start window between 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM.  When 10 people have chosen a window, it will be closed.

2.  There will be no beginner courses, no beginner class, no plastic map bags (please remember to bring your own), and no registration forms.  We will rent compasses and/or fingersticks to those who need.

3.  All courses will have a remote start and finish.

4.  Especially if you are not yet vaccinated, please consider wearing a mask when you’re not on your course.

You must preregister for this event here before Friday August 20 at 5:00 PM, so that we know how many maps to print.
