*Scrooge-O: An orienteering Score-O event in the dark that combines the fun of hide-and-seek and tag. One or more people are designated as scrooges and given red flashlights and blank punchcards. When a scrooge's flashlight is shone on an orienteer they must exchange their completed punchcard for the red light and blank card thus becoming the scrooge. Individuals, family groups and especially children love it!

Results from the today's meet at Camp Pinewood are now available on the results page.

October 29, 2008
This Sunday we will be holding our final regular meet of the year at Pinewood Girl Scout Camp. We will be using the dining hall as our registration site. Since the water is turned off for the season we will need to use the outhouses instead of the indoor bathrooms. The parking area is a couple hundred yards down the road from the dinning hall and start area. You will be able leave clothes and other items in the dinning hall while you compete.

Pinewood is one of our best maps and with the leaves coming down the visibility and running should be quite good. We will be using e-punching on all courses. When you register you will receive a number to pin on the outside of your clothing where it can be seen by the start and finish crew. All maps will be in boxes in bags at the start line with clues printed on the back of the maps. After you punch the start box you may look at your map and go. A few extra White maps will be kept at registration for clinics and instuction.

We would like to introduce some new categories for this meet to start a discussion of standardizing our local meet standards to be more in line with USOF guidelines. Standard categories would also let us introduce some ranking possibilies within the club in the future. You should always select your course based on the perception of your ability rather than your age. Open categories exist on all the courses. It will be helpful to the people working at registration if you know what course and category you want to do when you arrive.

When you finish insert you EP in the finish box and then give your registration number to the finish person so we know that you have finished. If you don't finish your course please come to the finish to punch and let us know you're safely out of the woods. Everyone needs to download after returning from a course so you will included in the results. You might want to keep your own time on a watch in case of an e-punch malfunction. Results will be posted by lists updated as the meet progresses.

Starts are from 12-2. If you are planning on running a longer course that may take you a while please try to get there early so that we have time to pichk up controls before dark. Daylight saving time ends this weekend.

We plan to offer the following courses & categories:
  WHITE - Beginner (1.9K) M/F 12 & under, Open
  YELLOW - Adv. Beginner (2.7K) M/F 14 & under, Open
  ORANGE - Intermediate (3.2K) M/F 16 & under, Open
  Brown - Advanced (3.94K) M/F 60+. Open
  GREEN - Advanced (5.2K) M/F 20 & under M/F50 +, F40+, Open
  RED - Advanced (6.3K) M21, M35, M40, F21, F35

Pinewood is about an hour and a half south of Rochester. Start out by heading south on Route 390 to exit 4 (Dansville). Follow Route 36 south for 2.6 miles until you see the sign for Stoney Brook Camping Area at Oak Hill Road (Route 48). Turn left onto Oak Hill Road (Route 48). Go straight through the next intersection and continue driving for about 4 miles until you come to Willey Rd. Turn left onto Willey. Pinewood will be on your right. We'll have "O" signs starting at the turn onto rte. 48.

We are looking forward to a great event. Please contact Linda Kohn and Rick Worner if you have any questions at

Results from the October 18th event at Dryer Road are now available on the results page.

October 12, 2008
The next ROC meet will be this coming Saturday, Oct. 18, at Dryer Road Park in Victor. You can start any time between noon and 2 pm.

While the meet starts at Dryer Road Park, some courses will also utilize adjoining Fort Hill and Ganondagon.

Directions from Rochester:
- Take I-490 east to the Victor exit (last exit before the Thruway).
- Take Rt. 96 into Victor.
- When coming into the village of Victor, turn right onto School Street (which seems to eventually change its name to School Road). This will be the second stop light as you come into the village, and the one just before the main intersection in town.
- Take School Street about 1 mile to Dryer Road.
- Turn right on Dryer Road for about 0.8 miles. The park entrance is on the left side of the road.

There will be five courses offered:
- White 1.7 km (all within Dryer Road Park)
- Short Yellow 2.7 km (includes Dryer Road Park and Fort Hill)
- Yellow 3.3 km (includes Dryer Road Park and Fort Hill)
- Orange 4.0 km (includes Dryer Road Park and Fort Hill)
- Green 6.8 km (includes Dryer Road Park, Fort Hill, and Ganondagon; involves two crossings of a busy road)

The “Green” course is really more like a long Orange course – it was difficult to find control placements that were truly at the Green level of difficulty.

The Orange is the same as the Green but with all of the controls in Ganondagon eliminated, for those who want to explore Dryer Road Park and Fort Hill but may not have the time or energy for a 6.8 km course.

Also, the Short Yellow is the same as the Yellow but with the two most distant controls in Fort Hill eliminated.

Dryer Road Park has an incredibly complex (and potentially confusing) network of trails, mainly established for mountain biking. Although Dryer Road Park is only approximately 0.5 km2 in area, there are 18 km of mapped trails in the park. It appears that there are some trails that were not there a year ago, when the map was made, so there is actually more trail distance than 18 km. Fort Hill and Ganondagon have a more “normal” network of trails.

There are areas of thick vegetation in all three areas, but control locations have been chosen to avoid any particularly nasty areas. All controls are either on trails or in areas of good visibility (either open woods, or open or rough open fields). The Orange and Green courses both will involve visiting some control locations in rough open fields, which typically have vegetation that is knee high or a bit higher, so leg covering is highly recommended for these courses, and is a good idea (but not as essential) for the Yellow courses.

Note that the Green course crosses School Road twice. This is a busy road with fairly fast car speeds, and people in cars are not used to seeing people on foot in this area. Runners must take responsibility for getting themselves safely across this road.

If you have any questions about the courses or the park, please contact Dick Detwiler.

Results from the September 25th and October 5th events are now available on the results page.

October 1, 2008
The next ROC event will take place this Sunday, October 5, with starts at Cavalry Lodge from noon until 2:00 pm. We will be offering five different courses so there are options for beginners to advanced runners. The courses have been vetted, thanks to Dick Detwiler.

The white course (2.4 km, 7 controls) primarily follows trails with some route choices. The yellow course (3.6 km, 10 controls) offers some interesting route options off the trails if desired. The orange (4.4 km, 11 controls), green (4.9 km, 14 controls), and red (6.3 km, 18 controls) courses should be both mentally and physically challenging for the intermediate and more advanced runners. These advanced courses might require some serious elevation gains, depending on your route choices. Also the terrain features will make many of the legs interesting or downright grueling depending on how well you read those contours.

The vegetation can get thick in some sections, especially for the red course. Also some controls are close to park boundaries, so please respect the rights of neighboring properties. All maps will be printed using a 1:10,000 scale.

September 22, 2008
For those looking for a little tune-up before the A-meet this weekend in Syracuse, or looking for some mid-week activity, ROC will be hosting a meet this Thursday (September 25th) evening at Mendon Ponds Park. The event will be Score-O format with 24 controls of varying point value. There will not be a White course set but there are more than enough White- to Yellow-level controls on the Score-O course to make it worthwhile for all levels.

Starts will be from West Lodge between 6:00PM and 7:00PM and there will be a one-hour maximum time limit. Please note that the sun sets shortly after 7:00 and if you are out till 8:00 it will be dark. Please come as early as possible and come prepared. The early starters will have a definite advantage. Hope to see you there!

September 18, 2008
Results from the September 13th National Orienteering Day event are now available on the results page.

The September'08 issue of the ROC newsletter, The Wild Times, is available.

September 11, 2008
This Saturday we observe National Orienteering Day with a meet in Highland Park. The main purpose is to introduce orienteering to a wider public, so we offer a white course, but there is a score-o course with long and short options, and a sprint. We encourage you to come out and do one of these, and stay to help to welcome and instruct newcomers.

The score-o visits all parts of the park, and will probably take you to places you've never seen before. The sprint controls are easy, and it is less than 3 km long, but there is a lot of route choice, and it is possible to run the whole way (if you are up to it!)

The start and finish are at the recreation center behind School #12 on South Avenue across from Highland Hospital. As usual, starts are from 12 to 2. We can use help with start/finish, registration, instructio n and greeting. Please come out run a course, help out, and bring friends!

September 1, 2008
Results from the August 22nd Sprint and Night-O meet are now available on the results page.

August 18, 2008
NOTE: The date of the Night-O has been changed to FRIDAY Aug 22nd at Veteran's Cabin at Camp Eastman.

There will be 2 sprint courses: a 2.5 km Sprint and 1/2 km Sprint first them the Night-O. Sprints start between 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Night-O Mass-start at 8:25 p.m. Remember to bring your headlamp or flashlight and with fresh / extra batteries. The course setter strongly encourages leg protection for the night-O.

ROC will be providing the regular refreshments; if you need more than that you can bring your own supper / snack.

Driving directions:

Camp Eastman is located on the South side of Lake Shore Blvd. to the West of Kings Highway. There will be "O" signs on Lake Shore Blvd. near the driveway of Camp Eastman, once in the parking area look for the ROC banner.

From the West of Rochester, NY: Rte. 104 East to St. Paul Blvd; proceed North 4.5 miles to Lakeshore Blvd; turn right; 1.0 mile to Camp Eastman.

From the East of Rochester, NY: Rte. 104 West to Culver Road; turn right and head North 2.4 miles to Lakeshore Blvd; turn left and proceed West 2.0 miles to Camp Eastman.

From the Southeast of Rochester, NY: Rte. 590 North to Durand Blvd; turn left and proceed West to Lakeshore Blvd; 2.0 miles to Camp Eastman.

Courses thanks to Steve Tylock! Please see his notes below:

2.5 km Sprint course with approximately 65m of climb. This course has variation A and B with three distinct loops. The opportunity exists to start two competitors at a time who will alternate on the first two 1/2 km loops before heading out on the third loop. The competitors will pass through the public area to restart each loop - the event should offer good viewing opportunities. [I had intended this as a championship of sorts, but that seems less likely now - and this is not the last sprint of the ROC season]

1/2 km "Mini" Sprint course around the spectator area. Based on some AttackPoint posts, other clubs have found a "tiny" version of a sprint event useful for kids or adults that don't want to race for 2.5km. This half km course will give a bit of excitement for those that arrive early for the night-O but don't want to head out too far. I know we have several club members with kids that might want to do this.

Night Score-O course with 24 controls. Camp Eastman is only so big and so this course is not meant to challenge competitors with long runs. Someone choosing to walk will get many but probably not all. With 24 controls in a small space, there is a chance that individuals will miss controls and need to retrace their steps. The winner will likely get all 24 controls and find an efficient route to snap them up.

Course setter notes: The park is small but you must respect the vegetation growth from this year. Areas mapped white may have more ground cover than normal. Areas mapped light green may feel more like green, and areas mapped green, well... There were at least two fields of stinging nettles, so leg protection is encouraged (esp in the dark). Some swampy areas are less swampy than mapped. Bugs were neither absent nor overpowering. Controls are relatively close, but are based on distinct features that should not be confused. Final thought - you should have plenty of opportunity to decide how you'd like to get from point A to point B.

Any question email Nancy Burgey at

Come out and have some fun!

Results from the August 2nd Genesee Valley Park Sprint/Score-O meet are now available on the results page.

July 30, 2008
The next ROC event will take place on Saturday, August 2nd, at Red Creek shelter in Genesee Valley Park. The shelter is located on the south side of I-390. Access to this area of the park is best from East River Road. If coming from the west on I-390, exit at the East River Road/West Henrietta Road exit and take a right onto East River Road. Take the first entrance into the park on the right. Follow the orienteering signs to parking. From the east on I-390, take the East Henrietta/West Henrietta Road exit, and go straight though the intersections at each of these roads to get onto East River Road. Again, take the first right into the park. There will be a bit of a walk to the shelter from the parking area.

Please note that that there is an early start for this meet. There will be a mass start at 10:00 AM for the 1-hour Score-O. The White course will be open from 10:05 to 11:00 and the Sprint course starts will be from 11:00 to 11:30. This will allow everyone to run two courses if they want.

After your sprint, please join us for an informal hot-dog cook-out. ROC will provide hot-dogs, buns and condiments. A dish to pass is not a requirement, but is always welcome.

We could also use a couple more volunteers - particularly for the start/finish.

Course Setter Notes:

Three courses will be offered for this meet. Score-O, White and Sprint courses. Expect lots of open field and trail orienteering for all courses. Don't expect mud unless it is raining. Climbs during courses are insignificant. Please respect the boundaries of the golf course. All three courses are designed around the golf course. If you find yourself running on fairways and greens you are off the course. Runners on Score-O course - beware of the light traffic while crossing or running on River Road.

Courses descriptions:
  Score-O. Easy control placement suited for beginners and strong runners.
  White. Length of the course is 1.9KM with total of 7 controls.
  Sprint. Length of the course is 2.3KM with total of 8 controls.

July 28, 2008
Results from the Webster Park Sprint/Score-O meet that took place on July 23rd are now available on the results page.

July 21, 2008
The next ROC event will take place on Wednesday, July 23rd, at Valley View shelter in Webster Park.

The meet will kick off at 6p.m. with a mass start of one hour Score-O. White course will be open from 6:05 to 6:30 and Sprint course - from 6:30 to 7:30, so that the most eager orienteers can do both Score-O and Sprint.

Flag pickup will start at 7:00 p.m. for Score-O and White controls, and at 8 p.m. for Sprint. Please plan your time accordingly.

May 29, 2008
The next ROC meet will be this Saturday (May 31st) at Durand Eastman Park. Registration and starts are noon-2pm from the Conifer Shelter, which is on Log Cabin Rd.

The following courses will be available:
   White, 1.5km.
   Yellow, 2.5km.
   Orange/Advanced, two loops, 4.5km and 3.0km, which can be done separately or in sequence (no controls in common) to make a 7.5km course (recommended for those looking for more of a challenge, with plenty of twists and turns to fit 7.5km into an area not much more than 1km*1km). This course is as hard as possible on the Durand Eastman map, which essentially means that it is an orange course; however, more advanced runners will find that running the course fast requires a lot of concentration due to the fast pace that is possible in many areas!

The woods are fast and open in most places, although there are a few steep sections. The courses were set to take advantage of the more open sections of the woods. There will be electronic punching for all courses, including white and yellow, giving everyone a chance to take advantage of this technology! Bring your e-punch if you have one or use one of the club's rental punches if you don't.

The forest is looking beautiful at the moment, with the flowers out and peaceful lakes to explore.

May 19, 2008
Results from the May 18th event at Irondequoit Bay Park West now available on the results page.

May 16, 2008
On Sunday, 5/18, you will be challenged with orienteering courses at Irondequoit Bay Park West.

  White: 1.12 km, 80 m climb
  Yellow: 1.55 km, 100 m climb
  Orange: 2.7 km, 110 m climb
  Zig Zag*: 3.8 km, 210 m climb

*This course is for runners who want challenge-the physical demand and the orienteering route choice will keep you breathing HARD- we promise!

Wear shoes with good treads and bring a "third leg" if your knees need a little assist because this park has HILLS!

Irondequoit Bay West is a beautiful park with very open woods and high ridges with views of the bay. There will be a portapotty and a water jug, but no source of water, so it would be good to bring your own.

Results from the April 27th event at Oatka Creek are now available on the results page.

April 22, 2008
The next ROC meet will be on Sunday April 27 at Oatka Creek Park. Registration and starts are noon-2pm. Note: if you plan to do the sprint in addition to another course, be sure to arrive early enough so you can complete your first course before registration closes.

There will be six courses:
- The white course has 6 controls and is 1.6 km long.
- The yellow, orange, green, and red courses will use Western Mass Rules. For these courses, you will receive a map with 27 controls. The number of controls to visit is determined by the course you select, but you can choose which of the 27 controls you visit and in what order. The goal is to complete the course as quickly as possible.

Course lengths are approximate, and depend on your choice of controls.
- yellow: choose 8 controls (2.5 km)
- orange: choose 15 controls (3.9 km)
- green: choose 20 controls (4.75 km)
- red: visit all 27 controls (6.8 km)
The sprint course has 12 controls and is 2.6 km long. Try the sprint in addition to another course! (You don't have to sprint...)

Directions: For those of you living in the northern part of Monroe Co., the fastest way is to take I-490 west to exit #4, the West Chili exit. Go south on Union Street all the way to North Road. Then turn left for 100 meters, then turn right and continue south on Union Street. It makes a dog-leg on North Road. Continue south on Union Street across the Scottsville-Mumford Road, across the railroad tracks, across the Oatka Creek and up the hill to the park entrance on the right.

For those of you living in the southern part of the county, R-251 may be your best route. Take it west but just after crossing the Genesee River, instead of taking the turn north to Scottsville, continue straight ahead on Quaker Road. This leads you directly to the park entrance across Union Street.

April 18, 2008
Even if you are not competing in this weekend's exceptional A Meet, DO come and enjoy a recreational course.

The recreational courses will be open from 11am till 1pm both days: Saturday, Trailside lodge in beautiful Letchworth State Park; and Sunday, Stewart Lodge in friendly Mendon Ponds Park.

An A Meet is the ultimate Orienteering experience and you can do a Recreational course and enjoy the spirit of a national event. The Sprint event will start on Saturday at 1:30 pm and there will be a lot of spectator fun to enjoy. The Relay event will start on Sunday at 10:00 and will really be exciting to watch. You can cheer on your ROC buddies to victory (or just cheer them on). The relay will allow a lot of spectator opportunity .

There will probably be orienteering vendors selling compasses, shoes, gaiters and other orienteering supplies which are hard to get otherwise.

February 2, 2008
After an early morning visit to the park we have decided to cancel the Webster Park Ski-O scheduled for February 3rd due to poor snow conditions and the lack of a shelter. People interested in qualifying for ESGs should check the CYNO website for next weekends events. The Score-O is also cancelled for the reasons stated above.

Ski - Oers, who knows !!!!

This morning we have experienced every type of precipitation on the weather charts in the last three hours. 1-3 inches of snow is in the predictions for tonight.

We will be having an event on Sunday in Webster Park at Parkview Lodge from 12-1:30. If it snows, it will be a Ski-O and if it doesn't then it will be a twenty control Score O with a one hour time limit. If it is a Ski-O, the park trails will all be single track or untracked trails. The park has a moderately dense trail system with numerous small hills. At this point we have no base, so unless we get significant snow you will probably not want to use your best skis. The shelter has space inside for limited waxing. Please bring something to cover the floor and table if you plan on waxing. The predicted temperature is 34 degrees. We plan on having warm food and drink for competitors.

Directions to Webster Park: Exit Route 104 and follow Holt Road north about three miles. At the end of Holt Road near the junction of Lake Road you will see "O" signs and the parking lot on your left for Parkview Lodge.

We will send out an update tomorrow via e-mail and you can also check our hotline at 585-377-5650.

Rick Worner, Meet Director

January 19, 2008
We will have a Score-O (on foot) tomorrow starting between 12 and 1:30 at Hopkins Point Lodge in Mendon Ponds Park. There will be a time limit of 90 minutes-get as many as you can in that time (but you don't have to stay out in the cold any longer than you want to!) Control pickup will start at 3:00. There will be a fire and hot refreshments. Winterfest has many other attractions throughout the park 11AM-4PM.

January 18, 2008
We will have an event Sunday at Hopkins Point Lodge in connection with Winterfest in Mendon Ponds Park. This was planned as a ski-orienteering course, and if there is enough snow, that's what it will be. If not, there will be a score-o. here is the message from the course setter:

Well I have delayed as long as I could before writing this note.

We appear to be heading back into winter, but just what kind of winter is yet to be determined. And this weekend is Winterfest weekend at Mendon Ponds Park. And that means orienteering - but just what kind we don't know yet!

We have between 1 & 3 inches of snow on the ground (depending on where you look), certainly not enough to consider skiing on. And there no snow in the forecast for the next couple days (bummer).

But Mother Nature is turning on the freezer this weekend, with temperatures expected in the mid teens - and that means the lake effect machine may turn on full force! With the groomers sitting on standby waiting for any chance to get out and make nice wide skating trails, there is still a chance for some reasonable skiing this weekend.

Assuming we have snow, courses will be
   Blue - 9.8K
   Red - 6.9K
   Orange - 4.2K
   White - 2.4K
Assuming we have snow by mid day Saturday, the Blue and Red courses will be 80% groomed for skating. Orange will have a distinct 'classic' flavor, although these trails are often wide enough for skating (but not necessarily groomed!). If the grooming is poor, or the snow is very slow, the courses will be shortened to allow for reasonable finish times.

In the event we don't have enough snow, we will have a score-O set for those who desperately need to get their O-fix.

In any case, please be sure to check the hotline (585) 377-5650 to learn what the race of the day will be.

Jim Russell, Course Setter

We will send out another message when the decision has been made.

Results from the Harriet Hollister Spencer Ski-O are now available on the results page.

January 3, 2008
Our first orienteering event of 2008 takes place this Saturday: ski orienteering at Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area. The meet is a qualifier for the Empire State Games. Linda Kohn has set 4 courses:

Blue 2.45, 2.32, 2.88 total 7.65k
Red 2.45, 3.08 total 5.53k
Green 4.19k
White 3.34k

Blue and red will have map exchanges. Starts will be from 12 to 1:30; registration starts at 11:30. The main trails are groomed for skating and possibly track set for classic. There may be route choices that use other trails not groomed for skiing. Starts will be at the parking lot, which has no buildings or bathrooms. (There is an indoor restroom in the center of the park, accessible only by skis.)

Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area is located south of Honeoye Lake on Canadice Hill Rd. From Rte 20A just west of the village of Honeoye, take County Route 37 south, staying left when 37 turns right. At about 6 miles south of 20A there is a fork. Stay left as the road turns to dirt. The parking lot is shortly after this fork. There are a few other events going on in the morning, so parking will be tight early in the day.

Ski conditions are reported on the Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation website under "trail conditions." This organization fosters cross country skiing in our area; without it grooming at HHS and Mendon would probably be a thing of the past. All area nordic skiers are urged to join.

ROC members, please consider putting in some time helping with registration, start/finish, or control pickup. Helpers have the event fee waived.

Rick and Dayle Lavine, Meet Directors
