RECAP

On the warmest day so far this year, 35 families, groups, and solos came out to Boston Run to orienteer. They took on 5 different courses, developed and set by course designer Howard Montgomery, including White/Yellow, Orange, Green, Red, and “RedSanity”, which was 2 km longer than standard red. The orange course was popular, as well as the white/yellow.

12 year old Isaac Burden completed the green course in great time, and the Johansson kids ran in to finish with the best time in the white/yellow course. Everyone seemed to have a good time and enjoyed the nice weather.

Many thanks to Todd Pownell for being an excellent registrar, beginner instructor, and control collector! Thanks to Howard for sticking around the entire time to act as greeter, starter, timer, and control collector! Thanks to Steve Wells for collecting controls!

Introduction to Orienteering / NEOOC - YouTube

If you’re looking for a new adventure, a lifetime sport that will take you, literally, off the beaten path, constantly challenge you, and let you discover new things about yourself and what you can do, orienteering may be the sport for you.

Orienteering is often called the thinking sport because it involves map reading and decision-making in addition to a great workout. It’s a sport that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or experience. The competitive athlete can experience the exhilaration of running through the woods at top speed, while the non-competitive orienteer can enjoy the forest at a more leisurely pace. Most events provide courses for all levels, from beginner to advanced, and the sport has been adapted for small children and people in wheelchairs.

If you love maps, exploring, and the great outdoors, try orienteering. You’ll be hooked for life!

Recap

Considering the bitter cold of previous days, mid-thirties, sunshine, snow (and plenty of ice) felt absolutely perfect for the Snow-O at Camp Manatoc on Saturday!  50 adventurous participants came out to navigate the snow and ice and enjoy the beauty of the scout camp.

The Trading Post cabin made for a very comfortable event headquarters with plenty of volunteers to help make the event a success.  The efforts of Andreas Johansson (course designer and course setter), Guy Russ (course setter and registrar), Bob Turanchik (event director), Sanae Rogers & Steve Hendrix (starters), Chris and John Naizer (greeters / crowd control / photographer), and Howard Montgomery (control collector) were all greatly appreciated.  Along with their efforts, good food, a big fire, and lots of laughter added to the ambiance.

Emily Kullman completed the white course in the fastest time.  She also completed the yellow and orange courses.  Very impressive!

Lee Hutton also completed both the yellow and the green courses.  Well done!

Serena Naizer and Lance Neffenger came in first on the yellow course.  They also earned their scouting ranger awards by completing an orienteering course with Andreas and demonstrating two different methods to start a fire.  Awesome!

Shelby Jones (orange course), Fred Mailey (green course), and Randy Mitchell (red course) were the fastest to complete their respective courses.  Great job, everyone!

Thanks to all for coming out and contributing.  We look forward to seeing you all again this spring!

Recap

Chad Roberts from BSA Great Trail Council, Seneca District, Troop 262, regularly brings his scouts to many of our events. When, as coordinator for the District’s 2019 Klondike Derby at Camp Butler, he reached out to NEOOC to have orienteering as one of seven stations for the event, Club members responded with enthusiasm equal to the task of “do your best”. The result was a 17-control, 300-point, sprint score course. The day started with the ground fully snow-covered, and around noon, flurries began and never really stopped. Scout spirit was strong throughout the day, even into the afternoon when fatigue from the many events, and the ever-increasing snow depth, might have fazed a less committed crowd.

On pure orienteering skills, the “Country Boys” patrol from Troop 558, scored 260 gross points, and even with a 50 point penalty for time overage, their net of 210 topped the field. Coming in a close second was the “Walrus” Patrol from Troop 575, with 200 points. Based on the scoring criteria for the Klondike points, the Walruses had the best overall score to add to the points accumulated from the other 6 stations (Fire Building, Patrol Games, X-cut, Archery/Game-On, Knife Throwing, & First Aid). John E. Naizer and Matt Conder of Venturing Crew 2335, while not a full official patrol, did clear the entire course during their run.

NEOOC welcomes families, youth, and youth groups to all of our events. If your youth group has budding orienteers and special functions like this, remember that the Club can potentially provide something like this course for your event at a mapped venue, to help spread the benefits and enjoyment of our challenging sport.

Stretch your legs and join us for some middle distance courses that are sprint oriented at Camp Manatoc. Courses range from WHITE (Beginner 1.9km) to RED (Advanced 4.6km).

ABOUT THE EVENT

Registration starts at 10:30 AM, with first starts at 11 AM – 12 PM. Notice – you only have 1 hour to make the start window, so get there in a hurry, and lace up those shoes!

Courses will be middle distance (shorter than typical cross country courses), and legs will be fast and furious. Most feature a zig-zag across campus.

Registration at Trading Post / right off the main parking lot. Start location is about 250 meter easy walk from there (no dangerous climb down to the river this time!) All courses feature a common GO! control with a 160 meter sprint to the finish across an open field.

Electronic punching will be in effect for all courses. You can use your own finger stick, or borrow one of ours. If you need a compass, we have loaners.

FEES
  • 2019 Member – $5
  • Non-Member – $10
  • Extra Maps – $3
