Great Brook Farm (Sept. 17, 2023) in Carlisle is one of the great locations to orienteer in MA. The rocky section brings back memories of mis-punches, the meadows provide easy running, and the transition into wood and wetlands reminds us we are in the heart of New England. The courses are set, and there's always a good turnout here. So, if able, please sign up as a volunteer for registration and download, or let us know on the day if you can help collect controls. We appreciate you: NEOC Event Volunteer Sheet (2023). This event is also the first of five events that make up the Fall 2023 Series.
