McDowell Nature Preserve & Park (Jan 9th)
January 9, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00Price: $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)
