Well we are off to a good start for the fall orienteering series. Over 40 people attended the first event, and the weather cooperated. No snow. A special thank you to MIchael S for course planning and setup. One of our newest arrivals Jan also helped with course setup. Michael and Jan are both extremely fast and experienced orienteer's and are members of our National Team.
At this time 40 people including SOGO3 have opted into our fall series. With 6 races remaining and Rumsey Forest event, it is not too late to join. All race time will be adjusted so everyone has a chance to win.
Thank You to Clarence, Karen M, Bogi, Bob M. Tory, Soma, Flora, David R, David C for helping out.
See you at our next event at Rumsey, on Thanksgiving weekend.
The start location can be found on the Google maps Widget below. But it is just south of the Repsol center.
No metal spiked shoes, as most of the courses are on pavement. There is ONE artificial fence that won't be in the terrain but is marked on the map with a thick pink line (affecting courses Intermediate and Advanced) and should be treated as if real [imagine that it is there] as it helps create route choice.
There are 2 bridges on the map with main roads going across them. If your route choice leads you across one of these than please stay on the sidewalk as you use the bridge. If you need to cross to the other side loop under it, not over it.
