The Next Events:

Saturday, Apr 19, 2014, A Non-Easter Egg Hunt in Sewell Woods, Wolfeboro, NH
At 10:00 on April 19th, you can go hunting for Orange and White flags in Sewall Woods. Their positions will be marked on a map and then you can go find them. Some people call this orienteering but many people just call it a fun way to enjoy the woods and use a map to find the flags.
There will be a mass start at 10:00 but if you can’t get there then, you can start the course anytime before 1:00. There will be approximately 25 flags in the woods. Some will be next to trails, some will be close to trails and others will be in the middle of the woods. Using a map, you will find as many flags as you want. Families with small children can stay on trails and enjoy a walk in the Spring woods with extra entertainment for the children as they find the flags. Others will be more adventurous….. You can participate as a “map hike” or you can see how many of the flags you can find in and hour and a quarter and compare your result with others. This is an event that the whole family can enjoy. If you can walk, you can have fun on the course. Starting at 9:15, you can get instruction on how to use the map.
This event is sponsored by the Up North Orienteers (UNO) and Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation. Sewall Woods, itself, is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. They have allowed the use of their land for this event. For a number of years the Trust has been working to protect Sewall Woods from development and this event will allow you to see this beautiful piece of land and also to improve your navigation in the woods. For more information about the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, please visit the LRCT website at LRCT website
The meeting place for the event will be at the Sewall Woods XC Ski center parking area. To get there, from the center of Wolfeboro, go north on RT. 109 to Sewall Road (just north of the Wolfeboro Inn). Turn onto Sewall Road, go about 100 yards and turn right on Pleasant St. Go about 200 yards and turn left on Clow Rd. Please park in the XC center parking or along one side of the road so that traffic can still pass. Cost per participant is $5 (less for children) to offset the cost of maps, producing maps, and equipment for running events. For more information, contact the Meet Director: Peter Goodwin at 998-3582.
