Map: Beacon Hill Park
Thanks to everyone who made it out for the 2018 New Year's Day O! We had record breaking attendance, and overall a smooth event with only a few hiccups. The weather was amazing and everyone had a great time. Results are now posted on the Left - there were a few names I couldn't decipher, so please email me if you need any corrections made (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Our New Year's Day Levée is back for 2018! Start the year off right and join us at Beacon Hill Park (next to the playground) to take part in an epic New Year's Day Orienteering event. Meet the new club officials for 2018, and sign up for your 2018 membership ($5 per person; free for those new to orienteering). And, best of all, kick off 2018 with a crisp run or walk through beautiful Beacon Hill Park with family and friends.
There will be three courses available for this event. The beginner course is a Score-O event in which your map contains every control. Collect as many as you can within the allotted 90 minutes. The intermediate course is also a Score-O but your map will not show any control locations - it will only show the locations of 3 "filling stations" which are secret areas that have the full map for you to memorize or copy. The advanced course will be a full Memory-O in which you have no map, and must memorize the locations of the "filling stations" before you start! All courses will be a mass start with a 90 minute time limit. Points are taken off for returning late, so watch the clock!
Registration and Location: Beacon Hill Sport Hut by playground. Registration from 12:30 pm.
Parking: Various lots at Beacon Hill Park
Starts: Mass start at 1:00 pm
Course: 90 minute Score event (or Memory-O for advanced course)
Cost: $8 per map for adults; $5 per map for youth. Membership required for 2018 ($5 for existing members, free for first time club members).
