Results | NOSOC & Classic Orienteering + Night-O @ Manatoc | Saturday 9/23

Recap

Another great weather day in NE Ohio

Mother Nature was cooperating with our two day event.  The first day featured public and Scout Orienteering.  All levels of courses (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced) were available to the public at Camp Manatoc, the Boy Scout Camp in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  A portion of the Beginner and Intermediate courses were also used for the North Eastern Ohio Scout Orienteering Championships (NOSOC).

The turnout was great from both the public and from the scouts (many of whom were camping out that weekend).

All scouting units (Cubs, Webelos, Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts, Girl Scouts, with their adult leaders) learned and practiced map and compass skills. Many troops work on orienteering related badge requirements.  John Naizer and company used the Yellow  course for Orienteering CampOree activities.

The day was capped off by an exciting short Night Orienteering Score course.

Information about our ongoing Scout programs are available here.

Snow-O 2017 (aka Rain-O) / Sunday FEB 12, 12PM – 2PM

Event Description

Join us for a potentially snowy and cold somewhat warm and rainy first event of the year at Camp Manatoc. We’ll feature WHITE and YELLOW (beginner) courses, an ORANGE course (advanced beginner), and GREEN and RED (advanced) courses. The beginner courses will stay near campus, whereas the advanced courses will travel up and around one of the lakes. Beautiful views are guaranteed, and you’ll be sure to stay warm from the typical terrain in Cuyahoga Valley, with lots of up and down, mixed with flatter sections to stretch the legs on.

The ground will be hard from the winter weather, and possibly covered in snow. It will most likely be wet, and a bit muddy. Route choice will be important. Good shoes with as much traction possible would be helpful on any of the courses. Snow shoes are ok, too…

Park in the main parking lot. Join us by the fire before or after the race to talk strategy, or review how you did out in the woods. Treats will be available post-race, including (a first-annual perhaps?) ice cream!

Event Recap & Results / Merit Badge Workshop – Orienteering / 12MAR2016

Recap

We were just getting started with 30 pre-registered scouts, when 12 more showed up to learn about orienteering! A few more tables and chairs later, and we were all learning about the basics of orienteering. Some of the requirements for the Boy Scout Merit Badge for orienteering were covered, and scouts practiced taking compass bearings, recording their pace count, learned about land forms, orienteering map features, and some of the basic techniques an orienteer uses while on a course.

After lunch, we headed outside for actual practice around campus, and scouts navigated one of two courses at the yellow level, with a few controls in the woods, off path. All scouts returned from the first endeavor wanting more, so we sent them back out on the alternative course. Much fun was had, and lots of learning took place, with sessions afterwards discussing the finer details of orienteering and map reading with merit badge counselors and NEOOC club members.

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event happen (see below) and thank you to KCE (Kenston Community Education office) for helping us organize the event on the Kenston campus.

Boy & Girl Scout Orienteering Merit Badge Workshop / 12 MAR 2016

Event Description

Join this class to begin working on your orienteering merit badge requirements for Scouts. Please note – the orienteering merit badge cannot be completed in one day – Scouts will have the opportunity to complete most of the requirements. The most practical way to complete the rest of the requirements is to participate in future NEOOC events. Of course, scouts and troops can also complete the requirements on their own. Pre-registration is REQUIRED (see below)

Make sure to dress for the weather. We’ll start indoors with the basics, like learning about map, compass, and orienteering skills. After lunch, we’ll head out for hands-on practice on several orienteering courses, both on campus, and in the woods. All levels of experience are welcome.
