    • Durand - East side
    Durand ski, snowshoe, foot O is now open!
    This RANDOM course is marked with 4” tags which may be difficult to
    see but it is also set up to be done using UsynligO!  Download the app
    on your phone, read the directions on how to set it up (very short and
    easy), print out a map, then go to the Durand golf club parking lot
    (i.e. the start triangle) and press “start “.  You should hear a chime
    to indicate that it’s working.  Put  the phone in your pocket and head
    off to whatever control you choose.  When you get within range of the
    control location you will hear another chime, you have arrived!  No
    need to do anything else, leave your phone in your pocket and set off
    to the next control.
    It’s worth a look at the demo video that is posted on the UsynligO website:

    To browse courses or print maps from your computer, go to

    Need help finding your way?  There is even a help screen on the app
    that will help you once you are on the course.
    Or you can just print out the map and look for the orange & white
    tags...either way you'll have a great time.

    • Cummings Nature Center, Naples, NY

    There are currently beginner ski and snowshoe courses (with regular flags) at Cumming Nature Center. Maps are available at the front desk at CNC or through UsynligO. These courses will be available all winter.  Intermediate and advanced courses are now posted on the UsynligO website as well!

    About UsynligO: UsynligO is a cell phone app that lets you orienteer without flags - it plays a sound when you arrive at a control location and can also provide hints for finding the right location. You do need cell service (or wifi) to download a course so it is a good idea to do this at home before traveling to the venue, but only the GPS is needed to run a course. Bristol Orienteering Klub has a helpful guide for howto get and use UsynligO:

    • Mendon Ponds - Pond Road Start

    Mendon Ski-O on UsynligO (no flags, streamers or tags)

    A new Ski-O course is now posted for the South Meadow area of Mendon.
    As of today (2/7), the trails have not been groomed but there are good
    tracks for classic.  Check Rochester Ski Foundation website for
    updates.
    This is a 10 control course, 4.4k straight line distance (I had 8.2k
    when I did the course)...but not much elevation.  You can also do this
    course as a random event.  Start is on Pond Road.

    Don’t forget to print out a map so that you don’t have to keep taking
    out your phone to check the map...trust me it slows you down a lot.
    Enjoy the park!
