JROTC Orienteering Meets

VOC Meet (11th Annual NJROTC Area 8 Championship)

December 16, 2017
Oak Mountain State Park - Pelham, AL [park info]
START/FINISH: Lakeside Pavilion
  • On Terrace Drive, go past the marina, park office, and beach parking lot, to the south trailhead loop road on which the pavilions are located.
  • Start any time between 9am-12pm, with a maximum 3 hour time limit. Everyone must be finished by 2pm, when control pickup begins.

The December VOC local meet will also be the annual NJROTC Area 8 Orienteering Championship. We will have 150+ NJROTC cadets from schools in Area 8 (AL, AR, northwest FL, LA, MS) competing to advance to the national NJROTC Orienteering Championships.

Any non-NJROTC participants are encouraged to download the waiver form, fill it out and bring it with you and just go right to the front of the long line of NJROTC cadets. We will try to get you out as quick as possible when you show up.

Whistles will be required on all courses (for safety). VOC will have whistles available for $1.

Check the weather forecast and come prepared!
