10/31/15 - Eagle Creek Park (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.
Since this meet happens on Halloween night, we wanted to offer more options for families who don't want to miss trick-or-treating in their own neighborhoods. So, we're hosting a non-spooky "Kids-O" before the regular Night-O. Please see the schedule below.
We will have Halloween treats for everyone, but extra special treats for those in costume (no costume contest this year). 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.
The night event will still start right around sunset, so flashlights or headlamps are a must!

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!
