Annual Rabbit Creek Meet and Potluck Social


Place Holder for Rabbit Creek Meet

2024 marks the 21st year the CTOC will compete at Bill Pilcher's Rabbit Creek Ranch, a scenic, fun and challenging event. Thank you, Bill, for making your property available for this remarkable string of orienteering meets. The views during the meet are expected to be spectacular this year! May is a great time for orienteering in the Owyhee Mountains. It may be on the warm side later in the day, but we will start early enough to save that time for socializing. Rabbit Creek offers very scenic views: wide open and full of unique rock formations in rugged western ranchland.

We will be having a potluck social after the meet. Please bring food to share!

The meet location is about an hour and a half from Boise, so plan accordingly.

Meet Location:

  • After crossing the Snake River on Hwy 45 at Walter's Ferry, continue south on Hwy 78 towards Murphy.
  • Immediately after passing the Murphy city limits sign turn Right on Old Hwy 45. Follow this for one block then continue straight and it becomes Rabbit Creek Road.
  • Follow Rabbit Creek Road for about 5.5 miles to J & S Road (there is a lone mailbox).
  • Turn Left on J & S Road and follow this road approximately 1.5 miles to the Ranch House

Liability Waivers:
Non-members please bring printed and signed liability waivers (available for download at ) from home. We will have blanks if you forget. If you are bringing a minor who is NOT your own child, you MUST bring a waiver signed by their parent or guardian.

Cautions and gear recommendations

Local animals include raptors and occasional sightings of wild horses. One special note of caution: in past years there have been occasional sightings of rattlesnakes. No one has been bitten, but we don't want to have a first time.

Sturdy shoes are a must; we also recommend gaiters to best navigate through the terrain. Some slopes are steep and unstable. It's not a city park, so safe travel requires attention to your footing on hillsides. A compass is useful for setting and following bearings.

Single meet (day) dues: $10 per person/team, free for members
Single Junior (up to 20 years old): $5 per person/team, free for members
