Election for Board of Directors

NEOC members will vote to fill five seats on the Board of Directors. Read the candidate statements and voting instructions.

Club Picnic

A charcoal grill will be available starting at 12:30. NEOC will provide plates, flatware, cups, punch, and cookies. Bring something for the grill or a prepared dish for yourself and your family, plus a potluck item to share with everyone. If your last name begins with A–M, bring a salad/side dish; last name N–Z, a dessert. Lawn chairs and bug repellent are recommended.

Trail-O Championships

Details on the Trail-O National Championships are on these pages (pre-registration is required to participate). Trail-O is a variant of orienteering focused on precision map reading, which provides an orienteering competition on equal terms for people of all levels of physical ability, including wheelchair users. Competitors follow a trail through the terrain to the controls, where several flags are visible from the trail. The task of participants is to use the map to decide which flag is the correct flag.
