Ansonia Nature Center, Ansonia, CT. Google maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/8sE7xddoUZzsTfMQA
This was the site of the 2004 Intercollegiate Champs and a 2010 2-day A meet, with the map having been updated in 2018, and again in recent months.
NRE Costs: $10 for individuals, $15 total for families.
Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. To pre-register, email Rick DeWitt (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include (i) your name; (ii) SI (dibber) number, if you have one; (iii) date of birth; and (iv) class you wish to compete in.
Payment and waiver forms will be handled at the event.
Start any time between 10:00 and noon. No pre-assigned start times, but there will be a start crew to hand out maps and assure a minimum 2 minute window between starts on the same course.
Awards: There will be awesome bragging rights, but in lieu of additional awards, WCOC will donate the amount we would have spent on awards to the junior orienteering team.
