• Join us for the 11th running of the Wanderings this Labor Day weekend (through Sept. 5). As you are Wandering about on a bike or foot consider helping out at one of our upcoming Fall events. We are an all volunteer club and we need your assistance to make these activities happen! Sign up here.
  • Fall Series 2022: The Fall Point Series is back again for 2022! This series provides a bit of light-hearted competition and encourages members to attend local events. Scores are tallied by course (white, yellow, orange, brown, green, and red). Participants need to run the same color course for at least 3 of the 5 events listed below. No special registration required. Mark your calendars now!
    • Sept. 25: Rocky Woods (Medfield, MA)
    • Oct. 8: Bigelow Hollow Saturday (Union, CT)
    • Oct. 9: Bigelow Hollow Sunday (Union, CT)
    • Oct. 24: DCR Pearl Hill (Ashby, MA)
    • Nov. 20: Event location to be announced soon
  • OUSA Masters Championship, Oct. 8-9, on the new map (Carl Underwood, 2020) of Bigelow Hollow State Park, Union, CT.
    • Day-Of-Competition Volunteers: In our normal volunteer sign-up, you'll see plenty of opportunities to help with this two-day national ranking event. Most shifts are short, and all allow you to compete in the normal start window. Afterall, we expect our club members to have great results.
    • Special Volunteer Roles: Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if interested.
      • Test Runners: Can't attend Masters Champs for some reason? Consider test running the courses in late Sept. or early Oct. Courses will be streamered and vetted. You'll be ineligible to compete, but your times will help us make sure the lengths are right, etc.
      • Awards Coordinator: We already have the official OUSA medals for Masters category Top-3 finishers, but last year's local delicacies at the New England Champs were a real hit (choices of maple syrup, cider donuts / apple turn-overs, hard cider), and we'd love to have someone pull that together.
      • Meet T-shirt: If someone is willing and able to design and produce event T-shirts, we could offer them for sale to competitors, offer them as awards, and/or provide to meet volunteers as a thank-you.
      • Lunch Fundraiser for National Team: We have park permission to do a fundraiser for OUSA's National Team or Development Team or other orienteering-related non-profit cause. In the past, these have been lunch sales of burgers/dogs or sandwiches, etc.
      • Post-race Refreshment Coordinator: We are returning to the tradition of appropriate post-race refreshments at the finish. Role is on the Day-Of Sign-up, but has obvious pre-event needs.
      • Start, Parking, and Results Team Leads: While these are primarily day-of roles, a single park visit with the MD/park staff in the final lead-up to the event is necessary to see event locations and set the team up for success. The team lead also checks on equipment & supplies before the event, and coordinates for the team's equipment transportation.
