Boulder Bob has created a new Kendall map starting with new contour lines and aerial photos. After that, more than 250 hours have gone into field checking of every nook and cranny of this wonderful section of the CVNP. Bob wanted to be the first to design courses for this map so that participants could explore areas that have seen little use over the years. All of the old rootstocks have rotted away. Huge new ones have appeared! Streams have changed their course. Would you believe there are 154 boulders and 84 giant rootstocks?

One of the odd realities of orienteering is that no matter how good someone may be on the course, it can still be hard to find the event venue! Hinckley Ledges Lake seems to consistently have this effect on our members, but fortunately a large contingent of NEOOC ‘buzzards’ successfully found their way to this special event. We heard great reports from them about the orienteering and the course for this beautiful summer day. Conditions were very dry, and the vegetation thick. Click into the post to read the full results!
