McDowell Nature Preserve & Park (Jan 9th)

January 9, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00

Price: $8.00

Due to policies and prudent measures we all need to take – orienteering for the foreseeable future will be limited to intermediate (orange) and advanced (green, red) courses only. No beginner courses (white, yellow) or training are available. Sorry newbies – but, we’ll have this back as soon as possible.

We’re still working with other park officials – so, please keep a close eye on this website and the COK Facebook page for updates.

At least we don’t have to worry about grizzly bears….yet!


Please note the following particulars for this meet:

No walk-ups allowed. Only those who have pre-registered and pre-paid online are allowed on courses. No cash or check payments accepted. Please use the “ticket reservation” feature below to register & pay.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you’ll see courses with a button to indicate how many maps you wish to purchase.  Click afterwards and a new window will open where you input your name, email, favorite Beatle’s song, and credit card info.  You should receive a confirmation email after payment is made (BTW – the system won’t go through if you don’t click on the waiver button).

Map sales are limited by park rules – first come / first served. Once we’ve reached the limit imposed by the park – map sales are final. This event’s cap: 30 Orange / 10 Green / 10 Red

Map sales end at 1900hrs, Wednesday, January 6 2021 or sooner once cap is reached.

Discounts for scouts, members, and JROTC are are temporarily suspended until further notice.

Maps are $8.00 each. You select which course and how many maps using the “ticket reservation” system. Your payment includes:

  • one finger stick for electronic punching. Finger sticks will be disinfected prior to the meet and will not be re-issued during the meet. Please bring your own if you have one. Controls do not have manual punches. You may elect not to have your time recorded – but, you must still check out/in with the time-keeper
  • map(s) with your selected course(s) printed on them.  Maps will be issued at the meet
  • an indemnification waiver  Every participant must sign a waiver either by purchasing a map or in-person at the meet. If you are going on a course using a map that someone else purchased – please print out, sign, and bring a waiver form with you (we’ll have some at the meet as well if you forget).

Groups (e.g. scouts, JROTC) are allowed; but due to limits imposed by park officials – we cannot exceed 50 participants.   Therefore, do not purchase a map for use by small groups.  Instead, each individual must purchase a map.

At the park: Follow directional signs to the meet location (reserved shelter in the NW area of the park)

Masks are required only at the registration and time-keeping areas. Let’s self-police keeping the ubiquitous 2 meter space between us (this includes while your out on a course).

This is a rain or shine event open to the general public. BYOC (please bring your own compass)
