UNO - Up North Orienteers

We are a dynamic and friendly orienteering club, noted for welcoming newcomers, for our families with children of various ages, and for our top-level national competitors. Our objective is to foster and promote orienteering as a recreational and competitive sport.

We offer a full schedule of orienteering in New Hampshire. Our event schedule is dominated by local meets (designed for beginners, casual orienteers, and competitive types). Please check for additional events in the orienteering web sites from our neighboring states:

Terrain will include park roads, trails, and off-trail routes. Manual punching. Map: 1:10,000 extended and updated by J-J Cote. Note that we need to have decent snow cover and a frozen lake to make it work. If conditions aren’t suitable, the event will be cancelled. (A decision will be made by February 17th.)
Course: Score-O with Western MA Rules. Controls will have three different point values, depending on their level of difficulty. Gather as many points as possible in 60 minutes, 90 minutes, or 120 minutes. You don't have to declare which category you're in until you get to the finish. Point penalties will be applied for times over two hours.
Preregistration is required, with a limit of 20 people. To preregister, email Meet Director: Liz Kotowski with your name, address, and phone number. We will also keep a waiting list in case someone can’t make it.
Sign in and Starts: 10 AM to 11 AM in the camper parking lot near the park entrance. Pay and sign your waiver at the start. Orienteers will finish at the meet director’s house on the lake and be shuttled back to the park to pick up cars. Entry is $10 per person, which covers orienteering and refreshments at the finish, including homemade chili, hot soups, and other food and drinks.
Directions: Take NH 101 east or west to Exit 5 in Raymond. Turn right at the end of the ramp and go 0.6 miles north on NH 107 to the T-intersection. Turn left and then immediately go right on NH 156.
