Cascade Orienteering Club is monitoring the situation related to COVID-19 in Washington State and will follow guidance from local, state, and federal health agencies. We will update all participants with information both on event websites and via e-mail regarding cancellations or other changes. Community and participant safety are our primary concerns. Given the rapidly evolving situation, the club will address each event as it approaches.

Cascade Orienteering Event Revisions:

Ultimate O #2 and #3 (formerly #9 and #10), June 13/14 in Cle Elum, WA are RESCHEDULED to August 15/16. The new dates are contingent on receiving land use permission from the Teanaway Community Forest.  This permit will be dependent on being in Phase 3 or 4 of the Safe Start approach for reopening the state. Each day is currently limited to 50 participants (the maximum allowed for Phase 3 events). If we are in Phase 4, we will remove the limit.

Choose Your Adventure #1, July 11 at SummerFEST has been CANCELED. SummerFEST is a festival that attracted nearly 50k people last year for much more than just orienteering. The City of Lakewood has cancelled the event. https://cityoflakewood.us/summerfest

The Wednesday Evening Series is currently on hold. Events in this series require the least up front planning, and we are hopeful that the flexibility may allow some events to happen this summer. Flexibility is key, as we expect responses to permit inquiries to continue to be inconsistent in the short term. We’ll post event details as soon as more concrete plans are in the works with our land partners.
