Courses will be open from Feb 23rd to March 11th

This is the last course of the Winter Series so take the chance to hone your skills before Spring events start.

Maps will stay posted until controls are removed

Don’t forget to post your results for each of the Winter Series either on Attack Point or sent to wrdewitt at SNET.Net with splits if possible. Also, if you gps-ed your run post on Route Gadget   Here  . The training will be more useful as more people post and discuss routes, etc.


HVO and WCOC are pleased to host a series of four bare-bones, time-yourself orienteering races this winter.  Each event offers a Brown, Green and Red course, and participants download the maps from a link posted on this site.  Control flags will be out in the woods for about two weeks.  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).
