added by: sherpes

Orienteering event will be at Laurel Hill State Park (Willis Pavilion by the lake) on October 30. There will be five courses to choose from: 2.1 km beginner, 3.3 km novice, 4.6 km intermediate, 4.2 km advanced short and 8.0 km advanced long. Although we will be in the "high mountains" (2200 feet) of PA, the courses are relatively flat (compared to many of the parks we use). Also, because the event is on October 30, we will have a few Halloween-related twists. Registration and start are from 11 am to 2 pm and the map fee is $6.
Don't forget, if you are bringing a minor who is not your son or daughter, you need to bring a waiver signed by the minor's parent (obtainable under Club Documents at www.wpoc.org ).
I hope you will come out and experience the park with the most open forest of any we use. Driving directions below or go to www.wpoc.org/tolaurelhill.htm to see a map.
