The New England Orienteering Club


[as of May 9, 2012]

This is alumni weekend at Amherst College, so rooms in Amherst seem to not be available. There may be a few rooms available in Hadley and Northampton, none of them cheap. Motels in West Springfield (just off I-91) and Chicopee (exit 5 on the Mass Pike) seem to be available and quite a bit less expensive. They are a little farther from the meet sites but not too bad.

Some possibilities...

  • Motel 6
    Nearest is in Springfield, MA. OUSA members receive a discount.
