Still a few days to sign up for the Green Corn Moon Rogaine, a six hour, half light / half dark foot navigation event down in Ohio. Registration cut off is 7/31 for this event on 8/5. Many SMOCers have enjoyed NSF's events - big hills, axes for prizes, $50 given out randomly at the start, tasty food at the finish.

SMOC seeks paid Event Director In order to bring you as many events as possible, SMOC is looking to contract with a person to handle Event Director responsibilities. This paid contract position would entail items like: equipment transport, organization, restocking, and maintenance; permitting; registration/check-in; flag pick up/volunteer coordination; and start/finish set up. The time commitment would be on the order 10-15 hours per week, with efficiencies likely to be gained with experience, and the Event Director would be able to participate in the event. Orienteering expertise is not required. Scheduling would be negotiable in the run up to the season. Course design, streamering, and flag hanging would remain with a rotating cadre of course setters, who can now focus on that aspect. We seek to pilot this initiative with the fall 2017 season. Interested parties can get more information by contacting smoc.mi {at} gmail.com.

Welcome to SMOC

The Southern Michigan Orienteering Club hosts events in southern Michigan.

Using a map and compass, find your way to checkpoints marked with orange and white flags. Courses range from beginner-friendly on or near trails to expert navigation courses with points far off trail in the wilds of Michigan woods.

You choose your route - climb the hill or go around. Jump the stream or use a log. Run for the win or go for an afternoon hike - it's up to you!

Many of our events have beginner clinics - check the events page.
