VOC / NJROTC Orienteering Training Camp XII

Camp McDowell - Nauvoo, AL

Our annual NJROTC orienteering training camp was held at Camp McDowell (between Jasper and Double Springs, AL). It is a beautiful place to orienteer with some nice fields, and great canyons adjacent to the Bankhead National Forest and just south of the Sipsey Wilderness Area.

This was our 12th year for the camp and the 7th year at Camp McDowell. A total of 182 cadets competed on all the courses.

VOC Members Assisting: Joey Ciza, Anne Mathews, James Pilman, Daniel Bond, Barry Holmes, Stella Holmes, Jack Holmes

Weather: Temperature start out in the mid 30's early Saturday morning and warmed to 60 degrees on Saturday afternoon. Weather was clear with a little wind.

Weather: Beautiful weather for orienteering. Temperature started out around 40 degrees and climbed to the low 50's by afternoon.

Thank you to all who helped out. With such a large turnout, all the help was greatly appreciated and it would not have run so smooth with everyone's help.

Thank you everyone who came out to join us. This was probably the largest crowd we have had for a local orienteering event that did not involve any JROTC championship.
