Schedule modifications

In light of the current public health crisis surrounding COVID-19, the New England Orienteering Club is canceling its planned public events, as we've known them, for the immediate future. This is to comply with federal, state, and local authorities' public health directives, and to protect both our participants and our volunteers.

But wait. Aren't local trails and public land open? Orienteering is the perfect sport to maintain "social distancing" as you navigate by yourself through unfamiliar terrain. It seems like the perfect way to meet recreational and emotional needs.

We all love orienteering. And our very mission is to promote orienteering and provide individuals, groups, and families with an organized outdoor activity that is mentally and physically challenging on a variety of levels.

A new style of orienteering & a new schedule.

Stay tuned to the club website and calendar, and to the "NEOC Update" email as we work with land managers and club volunteers to implement a number of bring-your-own-map events. Participants will be able to navigate around a course on their own time to minimize interactions.

As a reminder, club members have access to all our club maps in PDF form for personal use. (Check if you're membership is current.) See the NEOC Map Use Policy

Send your request to the Mapping Committee Chair.

This too shall pass, and we'll meet again in the woods for the sport of orienteering that we all enjoy so much.

In the meantime:
