The Columbia River Orienteering Club proudly presented

THE BIG MUDDY RANCH ROGAINE 4

May 26 - 27, 2007

at the Big Muddy Ranch, near Antelope OR


    Twenty years ago, it was known as Rajneeshpuram, the home of a Rolls-Royce-loving guru and his flocks of orange-clad devotees. Today, call it Rogainepuram : 65,000 acres of rolling ranchland in north central Oregon, primed and waiting for black-toed devotees of sleepless nights! All of this is only a very scenic 3 hours drive from Portland, Oregon, or under 2 hours drive from Bend, Oregon.

    Our 2006 US championship event on the south half of the Big Muddy Ranch had a great turnout of adventure racers and orienteers. So many new faces, in fact, we thought we could present this year's rogaine on the northern half again for these teams. The 2003 and 2004 rogaines held here were very well received. The varieties of flowers, the geological diversity, the human history, and the views are ALL better in this area! (Petrified logs, basalt dikes, and more) A lucky few will even get to see a sunset over the cascades, 70 miles away, from the highest point in the area. And you thought you saw some amazing scenery last year! (If you didn't make it last time, here's a link to our 2006 Big Muddy Ranch Rogaine page.)
