This year's Winter Series schedule is now available. We have an exciting line-up with multiple Harriman SP and Blue Mountain events, a re-run of the 2017 Billygoat at Ward Pound Ridge, middle-distance courses in Queens, NY, and a season-long O-range GPS course at Coop Sawmill, CT. Links to the map folder will be posted in due course. Enjoy!
In addition to Br/Gr/Rd courses at Coops, there will also be a euro-long course in the 12-15km range that goes beyond the confines of the fully field-checked Coops map to explore some of the gorgeous terrain N & W of there. Probably at 1:15,000. Courses will go live the same weekend as the Gay City meet
across the street. You distance fiends can come do the euro-Long on Saturday and the 11k at Gay City on Sunday. Then rest up for Nationals the following weekend out on the left coast.
Very jealous. Sounds so fun!
First winter series is now open for Coops Sawmilll..

Winter Series #2 at Surebridge Mountain is open. Flags are in the woods and map and course notes will be posted this evening. The map scale for all courses is 1:7,500. Contours 5m.
Parts of the terrain have become overgrown, and Stefan Slutsky, the course setter, has made a great effort to map the majority of these vegetation changes. Thank you Stefan!
Flags will be out until November 30th, as Rt. 106 has seasonal winter closure starting December 1.
Important safety tip for the Red course - if a foggy/rainy day is followed by a freezing one, watch out for possible black ice in the bare rock areas, i.e controls # 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.
Very cool Stefan. It's like a photo-O trying to locate the map locations based on the pictures! Looking forward to explore the Red course
Great choice of an area. I look forward to running it.
Jim & Rich hung pink streamers on the Coop Sawmill Brown course over the weekend for anyone who doesn't use O-Range.
Ran Harriman red course Thanksgiving morning and had a blast.
