Results, Carolina North Night-O, 14 September

In my opinion, Carolina North Forest is probably BOK’s best venue for night orienteering.  On one hand, there are a lot of winding, potentially confusing trails, making route choice and navigation –even if it’s largely on trails – somewhat challenging.  But because there are so many trails and junctions, there are almost always opportunities for […]

Orange course shared a number of controls with Brown/Green/Red and turned out to be rather difficult. Kudos to all who completed it. It was the […]

Results, Eno River (25 Aug 2019)

Sunday was a near-perfect day for orienteering — the temperature and humidity dropped to very comfortable levels. We got out on a brand new map of the Pump Station area of Eno River State Park, and most people had a great time. A year ago, this sort of small informal meet with no beginner courses […]

The adult 2m course turned out to be quite challenging, a lot of competitors came back with fewer controls than they had been assigned, a few even went overtime. The 80m course was easier. Results are below. Tonight we’ll have […]
