Expert Event as Eno River Park – Dec 5, 2021

Filed under: Uncategorized by Vladimir Stemkovski on November 28th, 2021

On Sunday, December 5 we will have an orienteering event in Eno River State Park (Cole Mill Road access).  The event is open only to ‘expert’ orienteers – those who have successfully completed a brown, green, or red course.  The registration page is here. There are two start windows to chose from.

Courses: Red (7.3km, 22cp), Green (5.8km, 17cp), Brown (3.8km, 11cp).

No river crossings will be required.

Check-in at the shelter near Bobbitt Hole parking lot (GPS coordinates = 36.058153, -78.980601) to receive your map.  Note that this is NOT our usual Eno River park location – it’s a separate south eastern portion of the park.

There are 2 small parking lots: one just across the shelter and another one a few hundred meters further down the road. It is quite possible that both parking lots will be full when you arrive. In that case, the park allowed us to park on a shoulder of the INBOUND lane side of the road. Try not to block the road when doing so. Also do not block the metal gate that opens to the powerline (it must be accessible in order to respond to any potential emergencies).

We will implement the following procedures to help with social distancing.

1.  When you register, you must select a specific 30-minute start window between 12 PM and 1:00 PM.  When 25 people have chosen a window, it will be closed.

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

3.  Masks are required at the registration area.

You must preregister for this event here before 5:00 PM on Friday Dec 3, so that we know how many maps to print.  REGISTRATION IS CLOSED NOW
