Winterfest at Mendon Ponds Park is a day when lots of winter activities are available for 'preview' at different locations in the park. Although we are not offering a regular event we will be setting out a Score-O/Beginner ski-O (or foot-O, depending on the weather) for people to preview Orienteering. We will be locate at Hopkins Point Shelter and from noon to 2. Please pre-register if you plan on attending; there will be day-of registration. This event is FREE for everyone
Beginner Course 1.8 km - 100 m climb - 11 controls
Score-O course - 17 controls you choose your own route, any order.
Most controls will be located within 6' of a trail; a couple of others will require some off trail walking. The trail conditions will depend on the weather between now and then. It is a well used trail most of the time.
This is a find the control, check the number, then use the punch to punch the correct box on your map, no e-punch. MAKE SURE YOU SIGN OUT WHEN FINISHED.
Please pre-register if you are planning on attending so we can print enough maps.
