Hello all Attack point followers, This is a Preliminary Heads UP Announcement that precede's the Formal posting to the HVO club schedule (soon). The permit is approved (Thanks Jeremy!(, The ED and CS Bob Rycharski is ready, The NJ in USA ... forest is ready, some of the local NJ deer think its weird that flagging tape is seen amongst the trails and cliffs, and the park is underused and wanting hikers to attend if you'r in the NJ area. Fort Lee is a historic recreation of old revolutionary earthworks, with fantastic views of NYC and the adjacent GW Bridge. So Keep your eyes pealed for the new HVO hiking event, Fort Lee Park Night-O, Score oh!, A Beginners Score O 1 hour to find the lot. Good luck, and I hope you can pass the word, warn-o, attendance will be pre-registration only and limited to TBA number. Once the permit headcount "limit" is reached (please remember this is for Oj to Yellow level O hikers, no advanced controls, sorry, maybe next year ...), a Wait list will be kept and if someone drops out the next person will be invited to attend. Keep your O training shoes ready, HVO is BACK in town with a new event! be Good. Bob R (ED)

"please remember this is for Oj to Yellow level"

Oj? Do you mean "0" like beginner? "j" for junior? Or is that some sort of typo? I assume you meant "white to yellow"

I assumed he meant orange, as in 'orange juice.'

OJ means orange level. a majority of the (32) night O controls on the fort lee score-O map are white and yellow beginner controls (to warn advanced runners that the park is a small map/site and also on a palisade 75 ft or greater cliff(s)- many!, and i do not want anyone to fall or get caught in a bad climb area in the dark [park has small cliff warning wire/post fences]), about 4 controls are orange degree of difficulty to find and are off trail, where one has to find the best route or know from the clues that one may only see the reflective tape if one deduces why one is near say a certain cliff near a trail, but the o flag has limited visibility as it tucked in say the lower inside part (corner cliff) of that cliff so that to a novice you might walk right past one O flag as its flag down low. but quite visible if you are right above it... enjoy. Bob R .
ps this map has laid dorment after a trail and road revision in 2013 (I was the field checker), so its long overdue for a Hvo Orienteering event. the basic info is now posted and in 2 days or less pre-registration hot keys will hopefully be activated by the registrar.
