Sprint Series Sprint (Junior Team Fundraiser)
Sat. April 19th 1:30 PM Starts

Location: Letchworth State Park, Portageville, NY. Located approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes south of the Rochester International Airport. (The Buffalo Airport generally has better options/costs than Rochester and is located 1 hour and 30 minutes from the Day 1 site and about 1 hour and 10 minutes from the Day 2 site)

Letchworth State Park is renowned as the "Grand Canyon of the East," and is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. The Genesee River travels through a deep gorge and passes over three major waterfalls, one of which is 107 feet high. The event will be on the west side of the park in an area that is predominantly open woods with a combination of gently rolling topography and steeper areas where the map get close to the river.

There will be a dinner Saturday night in the Rochester area. The location is the Shanghai Restaurant, at 2920 W. Henrietta Road. It will be seven course served dinner at round tables that seat 10-12 people.

Day 2: US Orienteering Champs, Relay
US/Canada Challenge Cup
Sun. April 20th 10:00AM Mass Start

Location: Mendon Ponds County Park, Pittsford, NY (Located approximately 25 minutes southeast of the Rochester International Airport).

Mendon Ponds is a Monroe County Park with over 2,500 acres of open woods, fields, wetlands and ponds. The glacially formed terrain is marked by eskers, kames, and kettle holes - resulting in some areas with intricate contouring.

The relay will use the 4-person 4/8/12 point system that has been used in recent years. The championship event is open to anyone, however, you must be a USOF member and meet citizenship, residency and club membership requirements in order to win championship awards. See USOF rules sections A-5 and L for more details. Age/Point structure is as follows:

· Ages 17-20 or 35-49 receives 1 point
· Ages 15, 16 or 50-59 receives 2 points
· Under 15 years of age or 60 and older receives 3 points
· A female orienteer receives 2 points, in addition to any age points.

Each team must turn in a team entry form. Team members must be finalized and forms turned in by 4:00 pm Saturday.

The Challenge Cup will match US versus Canadian relay teams. The only requirement is that team members are either all COF or USOF members.

Stay tuned for more more updates as we get closer to the meet!
