The orienteering meet at Arie Crown on Oct 5 will be somewhat different from the past but sure to be a blast. This event will be a One Hour Score Meet.
There will be approximately 30 controls located in the forest and trails. The participants will have 1 hour to collect as many points as possible. The harder a control is to get, the more points it will be worth, with the easiest worth 1 point and the most challenging worth 3. The point value will be indicated on the clue sheet. Bring a watch to keep track of the time -- there is a THREE POINT PER MINUTE penalty for going over one hour.

This will be traditional pin punch only (no E-punch). Pre-register in order to receive a pre-marked map; if you register day-of, you'll need to allow time for copying controls from the master map to your map.

Take I-55 (Stevenson Expwy.) 13 miles southwest of the Loop. Exit at LaGrange Road (aka US-45, Exit 279B), and go north about a half mile to the northern entrance to the forest preserve on your left. Look for the orange and white orienteering signs to direct you to the registration area.

Public Transportation:
Take the Metra train from Union Station which leaves at 9:30 a.m. Get off at La Grange Road and walk or bike south to the forest preserve (4 miles walk/bike).
