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.
