Tucson Orienteering Club will be hosting an orienteering event Saturday, 18 January at Greasewood Park in Tucson, AZ.  This will be a Score-O style event with a 2 hour time limit.  There will be approximately 25 checkpoints located in the park and you will have 2 hours to find as many as you can.  This is a small park with typical Sonoran desert vegetation and a good trail network which makes it perfect for those new to orienteering or looking to get in some training before the South West Spring Week orienteering events in February.  The event center will be at the ramada near the parking lot.

Directions: From I-10 in Tucson take Speedway Blvd. west for 2.2 miles to Greasewood Road.  Turn left at Greasewood.  The entrance to Greasewood Park is the first road approach that you come to on the right.  The trip time from I-10 and Speedway to the event site is about 10 minutes.  Look for the orange and white orienteering signs.

Schedule:

  • 9:00:  Registration opens and first start
  • 9:30:  Beginner's Clinic
  • 10:30:  Last start
  • 12:30:  Course closes

Check-In: To insure that all are safe, everyone, whether finished with the course or not, must check in formally at Start/Finish before courses close and before leaving the event site.

Fees:  The event costs are as listed in this chart.  Every person (all courses, all events) is required to carry some type of safety whistle so please bring a whistle or purchase one when you arrive.

Large Groups:  If you will be bringing a larger group please e-mail the event director prior to the race at uwviper <at> aol <dot> com.

Youth Groups: All participants under 18 must provide a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.  If your group plans to bring a minor without their parent/guardian, then please download a copy of the Waiver and Permission to Participate form from our Documents, Guides, and Forms page (look for it under the "For Orienteers" section) and have it completed and signed by a parent/guardian before you bring it with you to the event.  For more details, see our article about the waiver form for minors.
