Format: This is an all day event, you can participate in as many events as you want. There is just one fee for the whole day.

Open all day: MAZE and Beginner Course
We will have the Maze and the Beginner Orienteering course open all day for anyone that wants to try it. Do these as many times as you want.
12:30 - 1:30 Beginners Clinic
This clinic will be much more extensive than the free beginner's clinic we normally give at the front end of all our meets. Laurie Bishop and Shannon Ludwig will be your instructors. This is designed for those just starting out, or those that are having problems moving on to the next level. Children are welcome but they should have a basic understanding of how to read a map and should not be younger than 9 years old.
2:00 - 3:00 Intermediate/Advanced Clinic
We rarely have any advanced training but more of these are in the future plans. We will cover Contour Lines, fast interpretation of map features and a few other things. Most of this clinic focuses on Sprint Format (Our GoGo Meets). Instructor: Bruce Moore
3:30 - 4:30 Maze Relay
The details are still being worked out but this promises to be a fun event. Ryan Dunlap is putting this one on. The teams will be put together on the spot and the winning team gets an award!
5:00 Chase the Rabbit
This is the 4th year of the Chase and a fun event that anyone can win. You only need to have 6 finished courses in the GoGo Summer Series to qualify for placing. It is open to anyone regardless but for those just starting out, we have an easy course set up as an option. Click here to see what your start time is and if you qualify.
*6:30 Potluck and Awards
There is a website setup for those who are participating and want to bring a dish. We do not have a paid option for this and we do not want everyone to bring just one item Potluck Signup
We are keeping the fees as simple and low as possible but at the same time giving encouraging youth and volunteers to participate. OLOU values both and the event is completely free for volunteers and children under the age of 16.
We also are giving paid club members and early online registrations a big discount. ***Not all fees fit your situation so if you have any questions, please call the Meet Director Bruce Moore at 502-640-6861
