Join us on one of our new maps at St. James Farm in Warrenville. You can find out more about this unique venue at http://dupageforest.org/Conservation/Forest_Preserves/St__James_Farm.aspx.

Registration is open until 10/12/18.

We will have our usual five point-to-point courses (White, Yellow, Orange, Green and Red) for this event. There will be something for orienteers of every skill level, from beginners to advanced, to enjoy.

Important Information
Please note that all attendees must use the Hoy Avenue entrance and park in a designated field near the Pavilion. Hoy Avenue can be accessed via Madison Street off of Butterfield Road (IL 56). Please see the following map for directions to the entrance and parking. Please also note that you must cross the Illinois Prairie Path as you enter the St. James Farm property. Proceed with caution and be alert for cyclists and other path users.

With this being a new orienteering venue for our club, we encourage all attendees to review the mapper notes to get important information about mapping of particular features and guidelines on restricted areas and other considerations for this site.

St. James Farm is bordered by Winfield Road on the west and Butterfield Road (IL 56) on the south. Entrance to St. James Farm for this event must be through the Hoy Avenue entrance. Hoy Avenue can be accessed via Madison Street off of Butterfield Road. Please see the following map [link to map] for directions to the entrance and parking.
