Please join us at James Baird State Park on Sunday, October 8th. We will have six courses available from white through red. See the course lengths below. The map has been expanded and completely re-created from scratch. It will also be printed at a 1:7,500 scale for all courses. Starts will be from 10am to 1pm. All courses will close at 3pm.
James Baird State Park is a smaller park with a significant trail network, so excellent for beginners and those moving up to more challenging courses. It also has some beautiful open woods areas for our advanced orienteers.
There is NO entrance fee to the park. We will be meeting near the lower parking lot. Please look for directional signs at the 4-way stop near the golf club house. Passenger cars can enter the park directly from the Taconic Parkway. Buses must enter the park from the entrance on Freedom Rd (Dutchess County Route 47), then proceed though the park to the 4-way stop.
Please contact Meet Director/Course Setter Craig Weber with any questions. (hvotreasurer at gmail dot com)
