Welcome to the 38th Annual West  
 
 
 Point National Meet!
 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
 
The United States Military Academy Orienteering Club (USMAOC) is
 
proud to host its 38th Annual National meet from April 22rd-23rd,
 
2017. We are a top-tier West Point club team that strives for
 
excellence in academics, physical fitness, military development, and
 
 personal leadership. We look forward to hosting another great
 
orienteering meet this spring. This year's meet will
 
have two Classic races: Saturday's Classic will be hosted on
 
West Point Property on Saturday, and Sunday's will be hosted at 
 
Harriman State Park, home to the World Orienteering Championships
 
 of '93. Those with years of experience will find the unique West
 
Point terrain to be both enjoyable and challenging, pushing the limits
 
of navigational skill. Anyone new to the sport is strongly encouraged
 
 to challenge themselves and test both their mental agility and
 
physical fitness. We offer a variety of course levels for all ages. See
 
you in the woods! Go Army, Beat Navy!

Saturday Night Dinner ($20)
 
 
 
Saturday night we'll be hosting a catered dinner in historic Barth Hall
 
 overlooking Lake Popolopen, the site of cadet summer training for the last 60
 
 years. A review session for all Saturday courses will be held as well, inviting
 
the winning competitors to come share their thoughts on their route choices.
 
 Additionally, live musical entertainment will be provided by a guitarist from
 
the USMA band! Rumor has it that he is preparing a special song for the
 
orienteering community. Truly this will be a night to remember!

Awards
 
 
 
Prizes will be awarded to the overall winners. The winner will be
 
 determined by the lowest total time from the two courses.

T-Shirts
 
      A Meet Tshirt.JPGA Meet tshirt 2.JPG
 
 
As you may have noticed when initially registering, we were unable to
 
make T-shirts or other memorabilia for the meet available for order. This
 
was due to concerns of branding issues regarding the West Point logo,
 
 preventing our issue of T-shirts last year. However, the situation just
 
 changed and we finally got approval to make T-shirts available for order.
  
Represent the orienteering community with a brand new T-shirt
 
commemorating the West Point orienteering tradition! The new design
 
features old and new USMAOC logos on a charcoal grey long-sleeve T,
 
 made from 100% Gildan Ultra Cotton!
   
However, ordering will only be available for a limited time. After April
 
2nd, this premium orienteering T-shirt will no longer be available. Don’t
 
miss out on this great opportunity to get a limited edition piece of unique
 
 Orienteering gear! 
 
All information can be found at the ordering site which is linked below.
 
Remember ordering closes SOON!!
