Winter Series is now closed.
Flags will remain out at Westmoreland and WPR until midnight April 7th and then they will magically disappear.
Maps for WRP (WS6), Westmoreland and Huntington are all HERE
Niels was the course setter for the WS6 courses which use the SW section of the WPR map, a little used area in past events. Scale is 1:10,000 for red and Green and 1:7,500 for Green and Brown.
To WPR. From IS 684 take exit 6 and turn east on Rt 35. After about 3 miles turn right on Rt 121. Entrance to WPR is about 100mt on your left. Follow Park road to entrance booth ($10 per car at weekends) and then take first road on the right (Michigan Rd.). Follow road to parking area at the end. If you are coming west on Rt 35 turn left on Rt 121 after passing thru lights at Cross River.
There is an 800m walk to the start (Go straight from the trailhead on the red blazed trail to Junction 31). As of today (Thursday 14th there is about 30% snow coverage with 1-2″ wet snow in the woods (especially on north facing hills) with some packed wet snow on sections of trail.
All maps are set to print letter sized. Green course has option of 1:10,000 or 1:7,500 – on the latter the parking lot is outside the map print range.
Plot your course and time and splits if you have them on AP, and on Route Gadget HERE
Because of previous snow we are leaving flags out at Westmoreland and Huntingdon so that you can run a snowless (nearly) course, maybe two in one day?

Once again, HVO and WCOC are pleased to host a series of six bare-bones, time-yourself orienteering races this winter. As with last year, each event offers a Brown, Green and Red course, and participants download the maps from a link posted on HVO’s website. This year, control flags will be out in the woods for about four weeks and the events overlap some weekends so you can do two in one day/weekend if you want. You run whenever you want while the flags are out. The races are honor system based with no boxes/punches on the controls, just touch the flag (no remote visual punching). No beginner’s courses will be available.
When and Where
Maps will be available for downloading on HVO’s website the day before the controls are in the woods.
