Originally Used for the 9 August 2020 Orienteering Event
Below you will find a link to the
is a .pdf file. It is a 1:10000 scale
map with 5 m contours. You can print the course on a regular 8 1/2 x
11 page. When you do the printing, be
sure to choose "Actual size", not "Fit" and not "Custom scale".
Either of these last two choices will cause the printed map
distorted in some way, i.e., mess up the scale.
Control locations are marked in the forest with florescent
Each tape has written on it "WPOC" and the control number.
It is possible that a few tapes have disappeared.
It is also possible that a few tapes have the writing faded
- weather does that. There are no normal control flags nor
permanent markers used to mark control locations. The tapes will stay in place only through October 31.
A couple of notes: 1) The map shows only 2/3 of the original
course (20 of 32 original controls). This is because to reach
the other 12 controls you would have to cross Camp Seph Mack;
permission to cross the camp was obtained only for the original date.
2) The North Shore of Yellow Creek S.P. has not
been used for an orienteering event for five years.
Consequently, the map, particularly the vegetation, is
somewhat out of date. Expect some green areas to be thicker
than the map shows. 3) The course begins and ends at the
North Shore Pavilion (lower lefthand corner of the map). This
is a reservable facility; if people are in the facility please do not
disturb them. 4) Control #131 is on a barbed wire fence. 5)
There is a large amount of cultivated land; you may go along the
edge of these fields; you may not cross them. 6) STAY SAFE
