A wildly less snowy and super fun merry Maybury Mayhem season ender! Thanks to Jennifer and Barbara for the holiday twists and expansive course. Results here - we will probably fancy them up soon. If there are any questions/problems let us know! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iALf8k-x2IPi4FyHMtaDu0n3nm2asRpXCe_ajMHAYGA/edit?usp=sharing Mayhem master Mark swept the course just 17 seconds! faster than Tom Logan, at 99:07. Congrats to Igor who grabbed the perfect score with perfect time management - just seven seconds to spare! LiveLox fixed up now - share your tracks! https://www.livelox.com/Viewer/2018-Maybury-Mayhem/Score-O?classId=181567 Thanks to a generous and large flag pickup team that quickly retrieved everything - the Simpsons, the Tislerics, MSUOC, Igor, ARRO, and Mark Voit. Thanks also to the Jen and Ati, BJ & Julie, and Jens for beginner crash courses. Thanks to Jeff McWilliams, and Michelle Green for photos (and Team Green for the roaming, super fast, hard to catch checkpoint!) SMOC Lost & Found - nice Head gloves at Holly. If they are yours, let us know and we can get them back.

Barbara and Jennifer got some flags ready Friday afternoon at Maybury. Can't wait to go find them! Note to self: Bring a highlighter or marker to plan a route, rather than digging through the dark recesses of my center console and hoping whatever I find still has ink (SMOC has spares if you forget). Also, consider a degreed compass instead of a rainbow in case J&B throw in some other twists!

Escape screens and stores: Spend a couple hours running around Maybury finding flags! Still ~two ish hours of discount pricing, although same day works too for slightly more. Beginner lesson at noon. https://smoc-runs.com/events/view/3624 (If you visit the event page on your large company network and see a frowny face where a registration form should be, your employer may not be hip to the airtable we use and you should be successful using your phone.)

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.
