The inaugural Winter Challenge was a competition of 30 courses, distributed across 9 MA-based venues. Forty-three members submitted their efforts, totaling 184 courses completed during the winter months! Members were encouraged to aim for three challenge levels.
Congratulations to all the participating NEOC members—
9 courses: You have mastered the Winter O-challenge and will be listed as a Winter O-challenge Master on the NEOC website (and contacted to help volunteer in the spring).
6 to 8 courses: You will roll into the spring O-season ready to show off your navigation skills. You have earned yourself a 2021 Winter O-Challenge refrigerator magnet.
1 to 5 courses: Who said you couldn’t orienteer in New England in the winter? Congrats to the 25 plus members who got into the woods and strengthened the synapses in their brain over the winter months!
