Events

ATTENTION: NTOA’s schedule is designed to allow orienteering to continue while minimizing interpersonal contact.  Some events are designed as “Do It Yourself” events.  Get more information about “Do It Yourself Events” at OUSAOthers are planned as “Bare Bones” style one-day events.

As we get further into the season, we  may re-evaluate and make changes to the Spring 2021 event calendar.  Check back for possible future changes.
