From the Meet Director - Mr. Dan Davis: Mabel, the COK's only orienteering horse, unfortunately got a DNF For our April Meet, we returned to Lake Crawford for the first time since 2015 and we had a fine Saturday for orienteering. While trees are starting to leaf out, the woods were still clear so movement was not restricted by undergrowth. Lake Crawford does not have terrain with lots of nooks and crannies for challenging control placement, so I tend to make some legs…

Report from the Meet Director - Walter Siegenthaler What a beautiful day, nothing but sunshine and comfortable temperatures. This was the last time running the event on the existing map that was made by Georgy Kuntsevitch, a mapper from Russia, more than twenty years ago. The interesting part of this map is that Georgy made this map without the use of a base map which means he started out with a blank piece of paper and drew every contour line…

"What a great way to spend a Saturday night" said Erik Andersson and you know - he was right!  Along with him there were seven others who braved the darkness and dampness that was McDowell Nature Preserve. The course was fairly short at 3 km with 8 controls.  But, with the slick surface and unusually warm temps - it wasn't as easy as it would seem. Thanks to the Char-Meck Parks & Rec for allowing the club to conduct this…

From the Meet Director, Sandy Kohn: All in all it was a god day. It was a bit chilly in the early morning but warmed up a bit and once people started walking/running their courses the temperature was not a problem. We had 223 participants, with 91 starts. Of these, only 1 on yellow, 7 on orange and 3 on green had a “Did Not Finish” due to not finding all the controls. A number of these were because they…

What a turnout for this season's Orienteering Extravaganza at one of North Carolina's most idyllic parks - Crowders Mountain!  There were 254 runners in 99 starts on four courses.  That's a tremendous impact on the all-volunteer COK and we started out just with two people to handle the throngs (more on that below....). A tremendous thanks is in order for: Bill Ketring, Barbara Scruggs, & Tricia Burd for always lending a hand (they're actually just trying to get in some…
