NOTE: Dates and venues are proposals and subject to change. Not all permits and agreements with land managers have been executed. Please check back for changes to the calendar. This season we’ve added a two-day meet in March. A previously proposed two-day in December has been changed to a one-day meet. We’ll publish details on event pages. Based on the success of last year’s “Do It Yourself” events, we’ve included a couple on the schedule this year as well. (Get more information about “Do It Yourself Events” at OUSA.) If you’re interested in volunteering as a meet director, course setter or e-punch manager, please email Stan Darnell.
