Other Orienteering Calendars

The intent of this calendar is to provide a resource for those planning orienteering events, to keep the community advised as to what is going on in sanctioning, and most importantly, to track events in the rumor and planning stages. This does not replace the official OUSA calendar, which has more information and a different focus.

  • Entries in red, and associated championships in ??? are rumors or tentative plans only; this does not mean the date or championship has been "claimed". The source of the information is in the right hand column for tentative events.

  • Sanctioned events where the championship or "WRE" is in red means the championship or WRE bid has not yet been decided by the board. Typically these are decided at the board meeting following the sanctioning of the meet.

  • Most events are added as a result of someone asking me to, either automatically via the sanctioning process, or as a separate request. That is, I don't troll the web looking for events to add, aside from WOC, JWOC, and WMOC. Therefore, some major events may have escaped listing. This calendar works best if people keep me advised of their tentative plans or major events they would like listed. Some events have links because the person who gave me the info gave me the link also. Tentative events never have links.

  • My e-mail address is schuh AT farmdale D0T com   Please include club name, event name, tentative plans and dates, prospective championship bids, and your name. For confirmed events, feel free to provide a link.
