Type: Orienteering - Local

The first WPOC sponsored orienteering event of 2020 will be held on August 9 on the North Shore of Yellow Creek State Park. Naturally, with the pandemic still going on, there will be some changes to how the event will happen. We will take precautions such as sanitizing compasses, finger sticks and pens. I am asking that anyone who comes to this event wear a mask and try to do social distancing while in the registration / start / finish area; out on the course, you can remove the mask. Volunteers will be wearing masks. Also, all WPOC members will NOT have to sign waivers; you (and your family if you have a family membership) are covered by our insurance by virtue of being a member. There will be one other change: Beginner instruction will be offered only from Noon to 1 pm.
Site registration will go from 11 am to 2 pm as usual and the map fee is still $5 for members (minors will be given a map free). Sherry Shank has created a multi-level score course (controls at all skill levels) in which you will have up to 2 hours to get as many controls as you can. There are 32 controls in all. Make note that we will be on the North Shore of Yellow Creek S.P., a location we have not used in about five years; make sure you follow the driving directions.
Please preregister so we make enough maps for everyone; go to registration
Notes: Preregistration does not involve paying any money. You can use this same link to cancel your preregistration if you need to. The deadline for preregistering is August 6.
