Items of interest to New England orienteers
by Aims Coney
At the biannual US Ski-Orienteering Championship held the weekend of March 10-12 in Presque Isle, Maine, NEOC scored more points than any other club and brought home the coveted Perm Cup for the first time. Led by Tom Jahn in M80 and NEOC founder Hans Bengtsson in M70, the Trolls edged CSU and other powerhouse teams on a weekend when the snow was fast and sugary in northern Maine but everywhere else in New England was bare.
Congratulations to the top-ranked trail orienteers who will represent the U.S. at this year's World Trail Orienteering Championships (WTOC). The WTOC will take place in Sweden from August 22-28, 2016.
