2014-2015 Winter Madnaess

Chris Gladwin edges out Michael Reese for first place overall in 2015 Winter Madnaess Series. The overall championship was based on the best four of five results in the five event winter series. Gladwin finished with 94 points comprised of a victory at Miami/St. Paul Woods, two second places finishes at Harms Woods and in today's final at Palos North as well as a fifth place finish at Swallow Cliff. Reese who captured a total of 92 pts competed in all five events, counting four third place finishes and without a doubt the most consistent performance in the series. Third place went to Michael Geary with 83 points and Natalia Deconescu was the first female overall coming in 8th overall with 69 points.

Volunteers Needed
No Experience Necessary

It takes a lot of volunteers to put on each orienteering meet, but it doesn't take a lot of time to be a volunteer. Volunteers are needed to help with registration, results, control pickup, etc. The typical time commitment is 1 to 1.5 hours. We'll show you everything you need to know to help out. Plus, you'll still have time to participate in the orienteering. All volunteers will be eligible for the end-of-year banquet, too!

Please check the 'volunteer' box on your registration form, and the meet director will be in contact with you.



Note that due to changes in the permit process with Cook County Forest Preserve District this year, our 2015 event calendar is being revised. Please bear with us as we work through finalizing event locations and dates.

About Orienteering

Everyone is welcome. No experience, no special clothes, and no competitive instinct are required. You do not have to run when orienteering—many experienced orienteers walk the course. But competitive running is also welcome. First-time orienteers are especially welcome—we will help you get started.

If you have questions about orienteering or need help finding the event location, e-mail the club secretary at secretary@chicago-orienteering.org.
