Special Orienteering Game at Menotomy Rocks!


NEOC families are invited to a game of Orienteering Capture The Flag, starting at noon.


Teams will place flags in their territory and mark the locations on the map.
Maps will be pre-marked with team territories, out-of-bounds areas, and the locations of the "jails".
Representatives from the teams will then meet at a neutral zone to exchange flag maps.
The usual rules will then apply:
If you tag someone from the other team on your territory, they go to "jail".
Prisoners can be freed from jail by being tagged by their own teammates. They then get a free walk back to their own territory (they can't get the flag on the way!).
The team that first gets all the flags from the other side onto their own territory wins!


Bring your friends! RSVPs are welcome but not required, to Barb Bryant.
Express Registration - Pre-register and pay online. (Closes 8 PM EDT, May 29.)
