Easter Eggs Rogaine V – Orienteering at Camp Grier
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$40.00
Returning this year for its 5th installment, the Easter Eggs Rogaine orienteering race is our annual homage to the very first navigation race we ever produced, over the fence in our backyard that saw a dozen friends beta test a new and crazy idea that an orienteering club was worth building. Come celebrate WNC Orienteering Club’s birthday with us!
Join us Saturday, April 8, 2023 for the 5th annual Easter Eggs Rogaine at beautiful Camp Grier in Old Fort, NC.
CHECK-IN OPENS – 9:00 A.M.
MASS START – 10:00 A.M.
FINAL CUTOFF – 2:00 P.M.
What is a Rogaine? It is a race format featuring a mass start where competitors must accumulate as many points as possible in a specified amount of time… in this case, a maximum of 4 hours. Controls can be visited in any order, and are each assigned a variable point value. Points are automatically calculated by the timing software at the Finish. Once the time clock runs out, competitors who have not returned yet to the Finish are automatically penalized with a points deduction per minute they are late. Highest number of points is the winner.
You do not have to spend 4 hours out there, of course. You can finish whenever you’re either tired, done, or probably both.
This format requires as much strategy as it does strength and skill, so careful planning and time management is key.
Don’t be dissuaded, though… the format is suitable for orienteers of ALL SKILL LEVELS, as there are no DNFs (“did not finish”) assuming competitors find at least one control point. It is FAMILY FRIENDLY. Sorry, absolutely no pets are allowed at Camp Grier, as it’s a working farm.
