10/26/13 - Eagle Creek East (Halloween-O)

Get ready to be scared! This fun night-time orienteering event is a family favorite. Costumes are encouraged and we always have fun prizes and twists that you won't find at a regular meet. The meet directors are silent on the details so far but past events have included candy at controls, a mobile ghost that you had to catch in the woods for bonus points, and a spooky cemetery. The event will start right around sunset so flashlights or headlamps are a must! 

We will have awards for the best costume as well as for the top finishers of the events. You will be turned loose right at 7:00 so don't forget to show up early enough to leave time (usually at least half an hour is a good bet) for registration and to come up with a strategy for attacking the course. 

Date: Saturday, October 26th, 2013 

Location: Lily Lake Shelter, just east of Lily Lake - Click here for a map showing the shelter locations and parking. Please note that this is a different location than past years!  This will hopefully allow some of you to see different areas of the park during the event.

Time Schedule: (Indianapolis is on Eastern Time)

6:00pm -- Registration begins
7:00pm -- Both 1 hour and 2 hour event begin
8:00pm -- 1 hour event cutoff
9:00pm -- 2 hour event cutoff

Please note that you MUST be off your course at the designated time, so plan your strategy accordingly.  Better to be a few minutes early than a few minutes late as there will be a penalty for lateness!
