The Oregon Cascades Orienteering Klubb (ORCA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving the orienteering needs for the south Salem, Corvallis, Eugene, and Bend areas.
We were founded by a small group of orienteers belonging to the Columbia River Orienteering Club (CROC). We wanted to start our own club close to our homes in Corvallis. On October 13, 2001, we all met together and created a small club called the Oregon Cascades Orienteering Klubb.
We hold several meets a year in Corvallis with expansion plans for Eugene, Salem, and Bend. Inaddition, we give training and talks to other organizations on orienteering and navigational topics.
Why Klubb? We chose this spelling to have a link back to the sport's Scandinavian roots.
Club meetings: Most of our public events are in the form of orienteering meets with free instruction for anyone wanting to learn how to navigate with a map.
Registration: Registration for our events from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, unless otherwise noted. You may start anytime between 10:00am and 12:00 pm. The courses close and controls are picked up at 2:00 pm.
