Items of interest to New England orienteers

finger stickIn the Links menu there is an entry for Orienteering Vendors. Many of them sell finger-sticks through their websites. The capabilities of the various SPORTident "cards" (finger-sticks) are detailed at sportident.com.

NEOC does not sell finger-sticks, compasses, or other merchandise in order to spare our Treasurer the task of dealing with state sales tax.

Orienteers at NEOC events this fall will see bright, sturdy control flags in the woods. We are the beneficiaries of a matching donation from Michael Commons, and the "matches" it generated.

Thanks to all who donated: Michael, Patti, Bud, Peter, David, Richard, Gary, Michael, Tobias, and "anonymous." Thanks to Pete Lane for procuring and installing the new flags.

Mil Plant Sept2015Just received from Valerie Murray:

Yesterday Mil Plant passed away peacefully in her sleep, in her special cozy cabin, surrounded by family. For the past few years Mil has been living in Clark, near Steamboat Springs, next to her daughter Barb's home. Mil (and of course Jim) will be remembered by many of us, both old and young, for all they did for orienteering from the very early years in New England, and later here in the high country.

There will be a family gathering this coming Saturday in Frisco at 2 pm at the Plant home there. Friends are welcome.

Your memories of Mil Plant would be very much appreciated ..... send them along to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and I will put them together and forward a collection to the family.

Area orienteers from the 1980s will remember Mil, and her husband Jim. She won the Women's 55+ class for NEOC at the 1985 U.S. Championships.

co-directorsTeam up with a "veteran" meet director this fall

All NEOC members are invited to co-direct a NEOC meet this fall. There are many openings on the schedule. We will match first-timers with a "veteran" meet director to ensure your success.

Please contact Barb Bryant if you are willing to consider this opportunity!

This Match is now fully funded, but you can still make an "un-matched" donation!
Thanks to Michael, and to everyone else who donated.
