July 22 Update

I want to let everyone know that we need to cancel the August 21st event at China Camp, since we will not be able to get a permit secured in time.

It appears the park rangers like us, but the district level wants a more thorough review and understanding of orienteering and the potential impact on the park. We’ll try again next year and start the review process earlier.

I am hopeful that this will be resolved in time. Just not in time for the event next month.

Beginner (White and Yellow) courses will be offered for those who want to try standard orienteering — finding certain controls in a specific order.

And there will be a Score-O for those looking to make the outing as easy or as hard as you want. You decide how many, and which, controls you want to find in a set amount of time. You can go by yourself or with a group. Can you find more than your friends? Just remember to get back on time, because there are penalties for being late!

Scott and Greg have been saying for a few years that China Camp would be a good location for a Score-O. We didn't use the map last year, so the terrain should feel a bit fresh. Come on out and have some fun!

More information will be available later in the year.
