Reconciling results between the Jr. Champs Practice an the Turkey Hunt may cause wonder about why there are many in the Turkey Hunt classes that are associated with schools, where one would think they should be in the Jr. Champs classes.   The reasons are varied and include:
    The group consisted of leaders of the youth organization, or had adult navigational assistance on the course.
    The group/individual ran a second course.   Only the first can count toward the Jr. Champs classes.
    The group ran a course that did not have a corresponding Jr. Champs class.
For this last reason, several groups ran the green course, some quite successfully.   However for the green course, the only Jr. Champs class is for individuals.  The green course is designed and set at an expert level where any mapped feature is fair game as a control location.   Thus, those on the green course have trained on the earlier development courses, are comfortable navigating with their given tools and experience, and can now test their ability in high competition.   The guiding principle focusing the expert level course at this championship on individual achievement within a team setting is to align it with Orienteering USA youth competitions, the national governing body of orienteering in the US.

The split time list shows time spent traveling between each control.   This is a compilation of everyone's split time report they received when they finished.   For each competitor, the first row shows cummulative time, and the second row shows each leg's split time.  Leading times are in blue.

Watch for the date! In the past this would say save the date, but this year everything is in flux.   So keep checking this web site for location and date of the 2021 Miami Valley Jr. Orienteering Championships targeted for March or April 2021.   The real trophies are awarded based on that competition's results.    Keep Training!
