Dear organizers,
Please post more information about venues and schedule. So we all can start making travel arrangements.
Dec 28, 2023 9:50 PM # 
There is more information on the NEOOC website than Pan-Am site
July 12 – 17, Pan American Masters Games
3 days of Orienteering – Sprint, Long, & Medium courses
Kent State Campus – Kendall Lake, Boston Run – CVNP
Exact dates to be announced shortly.

Which would suggest for orienteering one is best off planning to be in the Akron area. Right?

Of all PAMG events, Orienteering will be the farthest to the SE of Cleveland. So keep that in mind if you also have interest in viewing or participating in other events. The venues are firmed up as a Gord indicated above.

This is also why more precise information is needed.
I am not able to register for other sports and events without knowing venues and exact schedule for orienteering. In addition to not able to do travel arrangements.
Right now there is no such information available on official PanAm page. Most of all other sports information is clear.

Mike, BTW, are these events also approved for ranking?
Dec 30, 2023 5:00 PM # 
I believe that NEOOC is submitting an application for NRE sanctioning. I don’t know where it stands at the moment.

We're anticipating O-USA approval of our NRE Sanctioning application as a Masters-only competition.

July 13 – 16, Pan American Masters Games

3 days of Orienteering – Sprint, Middle, & Long courses

Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP)

This event is sanctioned as an OUSA National Ranking Event (NRE).
Apr 20, 2024 6:15 PM # 
NRE for 35+ only (restricted). There are no courses offered for under age 35.

Entry fee is probably based on the 'panam games'.name and vibe . for the 3 races (max).. ok- one can do extra sports up to 5- if they choose.
Good luck everyone!

Yes, the entry fee was set by the games and is the same regardless of how many sports / disciplines you enter (up to 3 sports, 5 disciplines). So you could do the 3 orienteering races, and if you like, also enter a 10k run, half marathon, bicycle race, curling, archery, judo, karate, disc golf, rowing, pickleball, paddle board, or something else for no additional charge.

Sports list:

(10k and half marathon are the same day, so unfortunately you can’t do both. Who came up with that wacko schedule?! )

Local NE residents now qualify for discounts

Reminder, here is the registration page for Pan American, you have about 6 weeks to sign up..

Mike, the influence of your words spread far. Last week you used the word 'whacko' to describe a PAMG scheduling issue. Yesterday in the Canadian Parliament the Leader of the Opposition used the word 'whacko' to describe an action of the Prime Minister and the Prime Minister himself.
The Opposition Leader got tossed out of Parliament for the rest of the day.
Watch out!
May 2, 2024 2:32 AM # 
Maybe the Opposition Leader, after all, should be proud to be "tossed out" of this Parliament which gave a standing ovation to a member of SS Galizien Division that committed heinous crimes during WW2.

FYI, they are now offering $50 off discount (thru 5/11) in the registration fee (incl. for those who have already registered) if you complete a survey.

I received an email today.

I am looking to book accommodation, and I don't understand the rain day situation. The last day is July 16, with a rain day scheduled for July 17. Would the orienteering event be moved because of the rain?
May 14, 2024 11:09 PM # 
The two rain dates would be used only in the event of severe storms, etc - things which would normally cancel or postpone an orienteering meet.
