Kings Mtn National Military Park (March 6th)

March 6, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00

Price: $8.00

From Walter Siegenthaler, Meet Director:

Another perfect day to orienteer, sunny with a highs in the 50’s!

Our new map of Lake Crawford, which also covers the eastern part of Kings Mountain National Military Park just got completed a week before our event at KMNMP, so I took a “not quite finished” map I received from Chris Gkikas, the mapper, a few weeks earlier and patched it onto the KMNMP map. I ran into a few problems, some of them probably operator errors or lack of knowledge, so it took me about 8 hours to get the map to a stage that I felt it would be well usable for our event. This allowed me to get the Green and Red courses to go through this brand new mapped area. When I went to check the control locations, I felt very comfortable navigating through this newly mapped area – it is nice when the vegetation in the terrain is properly represented on the map.

The feedback from the competitors was positive as well, I think most of them never realized when they went from the 2-year old KMNMP map onto the brand new map and back to the KMNMP map again. The April Meet will all be on the new Lake Crawford map, including the Orange course.

A big THANK YOU goes to the staff at the Kings Mountain National Military Park, is always a pleasure to work with them. I was surprised when I was setting controls in the Park on Friday and I got a phone call from the Park Ranger in charge of Special Use Permits. He just called to make sure everything is going well for our event on Saturday.

After all participants are back out of the woods, there is always the task of picking up all the controls before the park closes. Thank you to Lew Tager, Dan Davis, James Sisk and Stephen Sturgis for helping with this task.

  1. Carolina OK

    No discounts apply during this time – thus, no discount code needed. You should proceed with your order for March soon since maps sell out quickly.

  2. Matt

    I understand the impact that COVID has had on social events but I continue to find it difficult to orienteer due to the restrictions with number of tickets allowed per event. Even weeks before an event they are “sold out”. There is no limit to the number of people allowed in a park or on the trails so how can we limit the number of people orienteering…especially since the starts are staggered.

    Regardless, can you place me on a waiting list for this event?

      We understand your frustration that you share with many people. The club can only abide by the rules set forth by park officials – which we’ve done. Please remember that we’re all volunteers that do the best we can given constraints beyond what social congregation restrictions impose. As soon as we’re allowed we intend to resume operations as in the past.
