Register at Orienteering USA's Event Register: CNYO 2022 ROGAINE
This year's CNYO Summer Rogaine will again only have a 6-hour version, rather than our
usual 6/12/24 hour format, because of lingering concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic
that may still not quite be over.
Similar to last year's event, there will be a few changes in our normal procedures to
accommodate the needs for less personal contact even at outdoors events.
- First, there possibly will be no food service beyond light snacks at the hash house.
- The plus side of this is that the entry fee will be substantially reduced from normal years,
- We are also going to be using a rather smaller area than we have used for 24-hour events,
so the map will be cheaper to print, and this contributes to the lower entry fee,
this year being at a scale of 1:25,000 with 5m contours, on an 11"x17" sheet.
The density of controls will be somewhat higher than we have usually put out, with about
40 controls to try for.
- The controls will be a little more closely spaced than last year's event
where nobody got to more than about 2/3 of the controls.
- We will be allowing either solo entries or teams of 2 to 5 people.
- Rather than having a mass start at noon, we will be having staggered entry times.
Maps will become available any time after 8 am.
Teams can start at any time after that (until 11 am if a full 6 hours is desired) and
must be back 6 hours after their start, or by 5 pm at the latest, to avoid penalties.
- We will be using pin-punches for scoring this year, rather than SI-cards.
- Depending on current covid regulations, we may expect people to wear face masks at the
start/finish area when they arrive to sign in and pick up their maps, when they are near
other people, and when they come back to the registration area to get their start time
and go out on the course. Course planning before starting out may be done near your car,
or at open places in the start vicinity, and mask wearing will not be required then
if you are not near (6 feet) anyone else besides your own team.
- We will not be conducting any awards ceremony, but we will try to have some sort of
preliminary display of scoring available at the finish as we check the punch cards, and
the results should get e-mailed out to participants within a few hours of the finish, and
appear on our web site somewhat thereafter.
There will be water put out at one or two locations on the map besides the start and finish area.
The Start/Finish area will be at an old slate quarry on
Morgan Hill Road (42.78694, -75.99528),
and the last few miles will be on dirt road (in adequate condition for normal passenger vehicles).
There is some camping available at Spruce Pond in the state forest, requiring
advance registration with the DEC, and a couple of other road accessible campsites
in the state forest available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Aside from the normal campsites, it is of course permitted to camp anywhere in the state
forest as long as you are further than 50 yards from a road, trail, or water
(with the exception of the designated campground).
