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 will be available for a few weeks

around NordicFest in mid-to-late February.


Last year's ski-o courses at Harriet Hollister are available in UsynligO

only (no flags or markers in the woods) for training purposes.

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 how

to get and use UsynligO:

Remember the “ROC olden days” when you would complete your O course and come back to a table full of Mary Kolva's goodies? She lovingly baked all week for us. Before moving out of the area Mary made one handwritten book of all her recipes. The question was how to best share those recipes with the rest of the club? 

Mary’s daughter Judy recently answered the question by making a professional copy of Mary’s original book as a gift to her mom. This book is available to our club members by following this [link]. We hope you enjoy having the chance to bake these recipes in your own kitchen!
