Spring 2024 Schedule

Update: A Do It Yourself event has been added on May 28, 2024 at Paugusset State Forest in Newtown, CT.

Unless otherwise noted, participants can register and begin at any time between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. Control flags are collected beginning at 2:00 p.m. (participants must check in and finish the course by this time). Free instruction is available at all meets--no experience is necessary. If you would like instruction, please arrive before 11 a.m. (it's also a good idea to tell the meet director in advance that you'd like some training). Regular local meet fees are $5 for WCOC members, $7 for non-members. $3 additional per person for family members. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the meet director. Events are held rain or shine!

Given the potential for changes, please check back here for updates to the schedule. 

Per the recommendations in the OUSA Communicable Disease Policy (Effective February 1, 2023), WCOC will follow all current local and national
regulations in effect for each venue. 

Courses will be available for most events on shortly after the event is over. Livelox allows you to upload GPS tracks and watch your route tracks on the course map. You can also view the routes of other participants who upload their tracks and compare multiple peoples' tracks. Be sure to record your route using a GPS (e.g., a Garmin watch) when you start your course so you can upload it later.
