Despite the chilly drizzle, approximately 275 scouts came out for our first COVID-era Scout-O at Hale Reservation. In a first for Scout-O, timing was electronic and contactless via QRienteering (scanning QR codes to start/finish and at each control), meaning the scouts got instantaneous results and the scoutmasters could follow their scouts realtime on the courses. (This was useful as the day wore on and some scouts had not returned.)

Instruction this year was done using only the mini courses of 1, 2, or 3 controls, with 70 starts. This really helped to limit the number of instructors needed and to acclimate the scouts to the QRienteering system, preventing many mistakes later. Overall 44 groups went out on the 2 White courses, 41 groups did the 2 Yellow courses, and 15 challenged themselves the Orange, for a total of 100 groups across the 5 courses. SignUp Genius worked like a charm to limit arrival times to 25 individuals per 30 minute block from 8:30am-2pm, making life much calmer for the volunteers and wisely limiting the amount of inter-group mixing, though it also limited some of the social opportunities for the scouts - hopefully we can recapture that aspect in future Scout-Os.

With perfect weather, 13 adult Girl Scout and Scout BSA leaders spent 2 hours in Upton State Forest learning about the sport of orienteering and tips for teaching young people about orienteering symbols, contour lines, route choice, and how to get "Red Fred in his shed" when using a compass. The group was lots of fun, and it sounds like several participants will participate in NEOC events in addition to the Spring Scout-O (at Hale Reservation April 17, 2021) and Fall Scout-O (at Nobscot Scout Reservation Oct 30-31, 2021, pending permit approval).

2019 Fall Scout-O and Night-O
Nobscot Scout Reservation, October 26, 2019

What do you get when you mix 450 Scouts, 24 volunteer instructors, 15+ volunteers, and the enticing woods of Nobscot Scout Reservation? Fall Scout-O, one of the largest orienteering events organized by NEOC annually.

This year we hosted participants from 32 BSA and Girl Scout Troops hailing from MA, RI, CT & NH. With 167 starts on 5 courses (2 whites with 45 total starts, 2 yellows with 91 total starts, and an Orange with 31 starts.) and countless attempts on the 3 mini-courses, we had a steady stream of Youth and Adults learning how to navigate in the woods for close to 6 hours.
