EP Tom Sawyer. 2-hour Night O. Meet Director is Carl Christy.
Each November, OLOU puts on a Orienteering Event at EP Sawyer Park that can be especially challenging since it is done at night. If you have never been out to EP Sawyer Park at night, the park drastically changes. Wildlife comes out to play since all the people are gone. There are literally dozens of deer that you can spot everywhere since the headlamp you are wearing will reflect off their eyes. Oh yes, and the skunks are out as well. If you are thinking about bringing your dog, probably not a good idea during this meet.
This meet is a family friendly meet. That means you can team up, and also make this as easy as you want since it is a "Choose your own control Points" meet. You will have 2 hours to find as many points as you want. The time will start on the whistle sound which will be after sunset. Sunset time is 6:40pm on Nov 5th so most likely the start will be around 7pm. Just be sure to get there early so you can register and study your map.
3 December 2016
Taylorsville Lake State Park.
The Ohio Valley Scholastic Championships will be held December 3, 2016 at Taylorsville Lake State Park. (All times EST.) Registration opens at 9am. Starts from 11:00am-1:00pm.
The schools that want to take part in the Scholastic Championships put together teams of 3(minimum) to 5 (maximum) students from their school. The JV teams compete on a Yellow course (Y1 for Males, Y2 for Females). The Varsity teams compete on an Orange course (O1 for Males, O2 for Females). The top 3 finishers are used to calculate the team score.
We will use our standard group registration sheet. A copy can be found here. Please use one sheet per team. Anyone not running on a team, can run a course but will not be included in the Championship results. Please list all the non-team members on a single sheet. These registration sheets can be emailed to Ken Kling in either Excel format or as a PDF. He must receive the sheets by 10 PM on November 28th. He needs time to enter them into the computer and he will be out in the field hanging controls the week before the meet. Any sheets received after this time will not be accepted for the Championships. You can come and run courses but you will not be part of the Championship.
I need to hear from all groups of 4 or more, even those that will not be competing in the Championship. I need to get an accurate map count. I have to run map copies before Saturday. Please use the registration sheet described above.
Some background information:
Y1, 13 controls 2.9KM
Y2, 12 controls 2.7KM
O1, 13 controls 3.7KM
