On-line registration is open through midnight FridayNovember 8th. We could use a few volunteers to help out -- check the volunteer box when registering. You'll still have time to run the course!

White and yellow standard courses will be offered for beginners. For intermediate and advanced orienteerers, there will be a special training / memory type of orienteering -- come on out and be surprised.

Harms Woods is the wildest and most northern of our three maps along the North Branch, and is characterized by a large sloping hillside along the west side of the River that is intercut by a dozen or more reentrants, white and light-green woods and only a scant trail system. It is a technically challenging area with many point features such as depressions, rootstocks, and man-made objects.

Take the Eden's Expwy (I-94) 7.5 miles north (west) of the Kennedy (I-90) to Exit 35 (Old Orchard Rd). Turn left (west) and continue forward into the parking area. Watch for the orange-and-white orienteering signs.

Public Transit:Take the El to the Davis station in Evanston. Transfer to #208-Golf bus (bus leaves Davis every half hour starting at 8:43). Get off at the forest preserve and walk to registration (1/4 mile or less).
