Our popular night orienteering event is back for 2021.  We are offering a 2-hour Score-O and a beginner friendly White Course that is good for families and Scout groups.  All controls will have a reflector on them that will illuminate 75'-150' away when shined on by a headlamp or flashlight.

COURSES OFFERED:

WHITE (beginner) - point to point course in the main part of the park

2-HOUR SCORE-O - find as many controls as you can in 2 hours.  Harder to find controls are worth more points.  There is a penalty for coming back after the 2-hours that is a deduction of points per minute late. 

FINGERSTICK NOTE: If you own a fingerstick, it needs to be model SI-9 (#1000000-1999999) or higher that can store 50 controls.  If you have a model SI-8 (#2000000 - 2999999) or lower (stores 30 controls), please indicate that you need a loaner fingerstick in the registration.
