With rain in the forecast, but no clouds in sight in the early morning, we prepared fun, but challenging courses on the Kenston Campus and surrounding woods. All courses included a mix of both traditional “in the woods” orienteering, with sprint elements on the open campus.

Join us for the third time at the beautiful Kenston Campus to run (or walk) classic+sprint courses. The Kenston Campus features a gently sloping terrain, and a nice mix of woods, open campus, grass covered areas, landscaped features, and a full array of buildings, a sports stadium, baseball fields, and more. You get to see all of it on any of the courses.
NEOOC Club Members Ivan Redinger and Andreas Johansson helped organize an orienteering event for Boy Scouts during a weekend event at Camp Tuscazoar. Andreas designed a WHITE (beginner) course around the camp (see below), and Ivan ran logistics handling troop registration, etc. In total, about 60 individuals attended, and successfully completed the course. Some basic instructions were given about map alignment, compass use, and a refresher on map colors before each group departed.
Five club members from NEOOC travelled to Indianapolis and surrounding areas to represent at the Flying Pig XXI, hosted by OCIN (Orienteering Cincinnati) on the weekend of April 7-9, 2017. Bob Boltz, Fred Mailey, KJ Rufener, Todd Pownell, and Andreas Johansson ran various distances and events throughout the weekend, and took home a few medals.
