PlatformPalooza: Orienteer This Sunday at Cunningham Falls State Park

Greg Lennon

Head out this Sunday, June 10, to Cunningham Falls State Park (near Thurmont, MD) for a rare opportunity to orienteer in a terrain replete with charcoal terraces, as QOC brings you another Platformpalooza!

Registration and payment is now open online via the event webpage and is strongly encouraged by event directors Karla Hulett & Gary Smith to guarantee you a map. Course setter Jon Torrance has designed a full set of seven courses (white through blue), taking full advantage of the unique features of this area.

Be aware that the park does usually collect a per person entrance fee ($3 for MD residents, $5 for out-of-staters), so it helps to have in cash on hand. Weather is currently predicted to be unsettled, but the good news is that the temperature is expected to reach the low 70's.

Full event details, updated driving directions and quite significant course setter comments can be found on the event webpage - including the all important registration links for you to use ...
