WNC Orienteering Club
Bryan Hoofnagle's headcam run of the Orange course last weekend.
In his defense, his error near the Manor House at Control 5 was exacerbated by poor mapping (missing roads, inaccurate buildings,) and for that, I, the mapper, am to blame.
Now, his great big adventure finding Control 8, though... only he can take credit for that. 😉

Today's meet in Black Mountain was the second occasion on which we've gone orienteering during a hurricane. Big thanks to all who participated in a mix of wind and rain, sometimes torrential.
The timing system worked really well, and I'll be putting together everyone's results, splits and GPS tracks on the RouteGadget tomorrow. Happy (off) trails, everyone!
We've begun! Black Mountain Veterans Park through 2pm today!
Come on out, the weather's fine so far. 😉
Courses are set for tomorrow's soggy, windy shenanigans in Black Mountain! I wish it were me running these fun courses - FOUR to choose from!
See y'all any time between 10 and 2, and bring a friend!

This dotted brown line is a small erosion gully that goes through the forest. It's a new feature on the Black Mountain Veterans Park orienteering map, and you'll need to find and follow it to get around the courses on Sunday! Hope to see you there!

Literally held together with duct tape and baling wire, the prototype controls are almost ready for Sunday!
