NEOC member and perennial winner of the finish split Ben Gallup enjoys playing around with data in his free time. He generated the following visualization of the Billygoat by grabbing the GPS tracks of participants off the orienteering community website, Attackpoint, and animating them. Check out the results...
It's finally here! The 2013 orienteering season kicked off in NEOCland this month with two events by first time course setters Anna Shafer-Skelton and Tobias Karlsson. The unpredictable New England weather took its toll by dumping a pile of snow on Belmont and forcing the cancellation of the Beaver Brook event on March 23, but that event has been rescheduled for May 12. Last fall, the Board of Directors voted to continue the membership policy started in 2012: NEOC members run free at all local events.
What will 2013 bring?
I want to introduce myself. I am Judy Karpinski and I have agreed to take over the managing of ordering NEOC tops from Wendy Johnecheck who has done it for several years. Thank you, Wendy!
If you have always admired the tops and wanted to get your own, now is the time! I want to put in an order by March 1, 2013 so clothing can be used this Spring. We need a minimum order of 12 tops to place an order with the manufacturer, so don't delay. See the NEOC Uniforms page for details.
