Manito Park

Whatever your orienteering experience level, John Beck will have designed an appropriate course for you at this early-season event at Manito Park on Spokane's south hill. Manito Park is a great place to practice orienteering because the map offers lots and lots of landmarks, but a surprising variety of terrain. Park and meet near the picnic shelter at 18th/Grande.

Sandpoint Street Scramble

Walk, run, or bike this event in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho. Rather than a typical orienteering map, this event will be on a largish topo map of the Sandpoint area. In this "scramble" event you will have three hours to visit locations scattered around the area. Rather than punching a card at each location you'll have to answer a question about it to prove you've been there. An example might be, "what color is the front door of the house on the NW corner?" ("Street Scramble" is a trademark of our friends at MerGeo Nav Races and we use it with their permission.)
We'll meet at the Sandpoint YMCA at 1905 W Pine Street. Park across the street.
EWOC President and Sandpoint resident, John Harbuck will host this event. In order to prepare enough maps, John would appreciate you apricot that you plan on attending.
The fee for this event will be $6 for EWOC members and $8 for non-members.

Camp 7-Mile (Ultimate Orienteer 8)

EWOC hosts The Ultimate Orienteer #8 event at Riverside State Park's Camp 7-Mile. We expect that orienteers from all over the northwest will participate.
John Harbuck will design courses at classic distances:
White (beginner, < 3 km)
Orange (intermediate, 3 - 5 km)
Green (advanced, 5 - 6 km)
Red (advanced, 6 - 7 km)
Register, pay fees, and sign a waiver on-site, but it would be helpful to us if you could pre-register avocado so we can prepare the right number of maps for each course. For each participant, specify what course (white, orange, green, or red) they plan on running. Fees for Saturday (EWOC) events will be $7 for the White course, $9 for the Orange, and $12 for Green and Red courses.
Every car that enters Riverside State Park will need to display a current
Discover Pass.

High Bridge Park — New Map!

Vampire O At Manito

Celebrate the haunting season with EWOC at this night event in Manito Park. You've visited Manito in daylight, but have you ever tried to navigate around it by headlamp and moonlight? Vampire O is like score orienteering — everyone starts at the same time and tries to find as many control points as possible within the 60 minute time limit. In the Vampire O version you also have to avoid losing points to the vampire. Arrive at 6:00 pm to register, plan your route, and learn the fun rules. Costumes are encouraged.
Many people want to know if this event is scary. Course designer Tracy Schoenleber says it's about on a par with trick-or-treating: it's going to be dark out and their might be some tame Halloween decorations, but no one is going to be grabbing you. This should be fun for just about the whole family.
