Filed under: Latest News by Vladimir Stemkovski on April 13th, 2021

On Sunday, April 25 we will have an orienteering event at Horton Grove Nature Preserve in Bahama, NC.  The event is open only to ‘expert’ orienteers – those who have successfully completed a brown, green, or red course.

Courses: Red – 7.3km, Green – 5.9km, Brown – 3.8km

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.  You can read more about orienteering in Horton Grove here. In the case of the parking lot being full, we received permission to park on a side of the main road.

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 11.00 AM and 1:00 PM.  When 15 people have chosen a window, it will be closed. The courses close at 3.00 PM

2.  There will be no beginner courses, no beginner class, no plastic map bags (please remember to bring your own), and no registration forms. 

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

4.  Please consider wearing a mask when you’re not on your course.

You must preregister for this event here before Thursday April 22 at 5:00 PM, so that we know how many maps to print. 

See you at the event!

Vladimir and Tatyana
