Big-O Orienteering Meet

Big-O Orienteering Meet

Tuesday, May 3rd

Mass Start at 6:30pm

Kincaid Park Chalet

The Anchorage School District’s Health and Physical Education Department runs an orienteering event each year for elementary and middle school students on Tuesday, May 3rd, and they are keeping the course set up so that the club can enjoy it in the evening.

The meet will be a mass start in the Score-O format.  All participants will have 1 hour to find as many controls as they can before returning to the start.  The start location will be on the East side of the Kincaid Chalet.  ASD is using the same course as last year, so it may be a fun opportunity to experiment with your route choice or test your fitness against last year’s performance.  The course is made for beginners, with all controls on or very near the major trails.  That being said, intermediate and advanced orienteerers will find that since the vegetation is still low, you have greater opportunities for off-trail route choices that would be almost impossible later in the summer.  While there are some small areas where the trails are muddy, for the most part the trails are dry and in great shape.

Whether you can make it on Tuesday or not,  the meet director would appreciate some help taking down the controls after the event.  If you can help, please contract him by email:  email hidden; JavaScript is required

Hope to see you out there!
