Willamette Park is a nice-sized park for some longer courses. It’s a mixture of developed park, open grassland and dense valley-bottom woodland, with a good trail network and lots of detail (ponds, old river channels, gravel bars). Best routes will keep to trails and open areas, which will make for interesting orienteering with some fun control sites. The newest area of the park is included on this year's map.
We will offer three coursesfrom beginner to intermediate/advanced, ranging between 2 and 6 km.
$5.00 for juniors (17 and under), $7.00 for adults, $2.00 discount for any orienteering club members.

Registration: 9:30am to 11:30am. Start times: 10:00am-12:00 noon. Note that all start times are individually assigned so you don't have to be there right at 9:30!
