Welcome back to Wheaton Park! We will be offering a full set of courses, thanks for course setter Mihai Sirbu. Course notes and stats for all *8* courses are now posted below.
Timing will be standard: Registration will be from 10:45am to 1:15pm, start any time between 11-1:30. Everyone must be out of the woods and back at the registration/finish area by 3:00pm, which is when we will begin picking up the controls. Note that the registration/start area being used this time is near the "Train Station".
Intermediate/Advanced Training: Intermediate and up orienteers are invited to training sessions at this event. The types and times are as follows: 1pm - precision pace counting; 1:30pm - precision compass use; 2pm - route choice. Look for Mihai near the registration table a bit before each of those times, and feel free to join one or more of these sessions.
Any youth or large groups attending, please contact the Meet Director so that we can coordinate pre-registration for your group; the group registration and waiver form is part of the information on our Group Leaders page.
- Dogs are welcome, so long as they are on a leash at all times.
- We do have access to full restroom facilities.
- There are no entrance fees to this park, and parking is also free.
- Have any questions? Just use our Contact Us form and fire away.

A full set of courses (white-blue, including beige) have been set in a small urban park. Woods are open, navigation is fairly easy, courses are flat and on the longer side for each level. Be ready to run, and run hard if you want to stay ahead of the pack.
Most controls have close attack points (due to the park size), so this would be a good time to move up a level.
Root stocks on the map are old, so they have been avoided as markers.
|Entry Fees||Individual Entries
Note: juniors = under 21
Team or Group Entries
Participants are welcome to compete together as a single team entry. Teams containing one or more nonmembers are charged the nonmember individual rate. Teams containing one or more adults are charged the adult individual rate. For teams to receive member or junior rates, all members of the team must be members or juniors, respectively. Each extra team map beyond the first is an additional $2. Individuals or teams desiring to compete on a second course can do so for a reduced fee of $2/map.Important Notes
