ROC’s Annual Icebreaker Meet at Mendon Ponds

ROC’s annual Icebreaker is at Mendon Ponds Park on Saturday, May 4th.  Hopefully we will not have to worry about ice that day! We will be starting at East Lodge on Canfield Road. The format of this meet is classic, meaning we will have a full range of courses from beginner to advanced.

Save time on the day of the meet by registering online now. No problem if you can’t make it, but pre-registration helps our meets runs smoothly. You can pay when you arrive at the meet or pay online.

Please note that there is a change in registration and start window times this year. Registration for the May 4th meet on site is from 10-11 am. Start window is 10-11:30 am. Course closes at 1:30 pm.

Please dress appropriately with leg covering and footwear for the trails and woods. Ticks are already active. Compasses are available to borrow from the club.

We need your help! Volunteer at five meets this year and earn a 2020 ROC schedule shirt. Go to for more information, or ask any of our meet volunteers how you can be part of the team.

More Winter Training!

Try your o skills at Mendon Ponds.  This course was used for World Orienteering Deaf Championships.  There are small plastic markers in the woods instead of controls.  Enjoy the lack of snow by doing some extra training in the wide open winter woods.  There are 2 courses out there now, take your pick.  Good luck!
