David Alexander and crew do it again with an awesome meet in gorgeous fall weather.  Although some creeks were a little swollen - they could be passed without the need for a pontoon bridge or arm "floaties". Thanks to all for coming out and supporting the COK.  Just remember that the folks who put on these events are 100% volunteer - so, any help for them is always appreciated.  It takes people who love orienteering to keep it going in…

Here are the results from the October 6, 2018 meet at McDowell.  Many thanks to Bill Ketring for setting it all up and for expertly managing the event! Volunteers to help set up, manage, bring in controls after a meet, or help in other ways are always appreciated. Without more people stepping forward to help - the future of the COK may be in doubt.  Don't let that happen!

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…
