HVO/WCOC Winter/Spring Series
Note: WCOC WS at Gay City has been cancelled. There will be no controls out in the woods.
There are controls out on the Silvermine map in Harriman. Course maps are posted and the controls are a mixture of permanent controls (red/white sign) nailed to tree near to feature (Controls less than 100)and control flags (control numbers over 100)
Three courses Red and green 1:10,000 and Brown 1:7,500.
All starts from Tiorati Circle (NE side). Parking at Tiorati parking lot on Seven Lakes Drive.
Extra Bonus Training
Greg A has designed two corridor training courses for Ward Pound Ridge (Posted as WPR Corridor 1 and 2). Also posted is a description of the courses, directions to the start and a copy of a compass training article by Thierry Gueorgiou. This course does not have controls so can be done at any time. However please note that Ward Pound Ridge was very crowded last weekend - so much so that they closed entry to the Park for a few hours. Weekdays are still uncrowded.
Route Gadget for all Winter/Spring Series is at
Given the virus pandemic that is with us at the moment HVO and WCOC will not be holding any organized meets this Spring. There will, however, be controls out for individual training as we did for Winter Series.
Maps will be available for downloading on HVO’s website the day before the controls are in the woods.
This Spring training series is just that - training. They are not official HVO events and each participant in any or all of the training events and any continuation of them assume full responsibility for any and all injuries, losses and damages that he or she incurs while attending or participating in the Spring Series training. Please also heed any County, State or Federal restrictions on travel or use of the Parks where the training is suggested.
Maps are posted for Harriman (Silvermine) and will stay out for about one month.
Further training maps for other areas may be posted if the situation does not improve to allow regular meets.
Take care in the woods and stay healthy. While it is unlikely you will meet anyone off trail some blazed trail may be crowded at weekends as are parking areas.
