Discussion: Registration for Sprint San Francisco (Dec 7 - 9) is open

This year's Sprint San Francisco will have the same format as last year, but with different venues, including two venues never before used for orienteering (with brand new maps, of course). Once again, the two races on the final day (Sunday, Dec 9 at St. Mary's College in Moraga) will be National Ranking Events. The new venues are St. Mary's College and Hidden Lakes Park.

The number of entries is limited, so don't delay. You can register via OUSA's EventRegister here. There is no day-of-meet registration; deadline for entering is Monday, Dec 3, 11:59pm.

The schedule:

Fri, Dec 7: Night-O Sprint Relay, Diablo Valley College, Pleasant Hill
Sat, Dec 8: Three-Round Knockout Sprint Tournament, Hidden Lakes (Martinez) and Paso Nogal (Pleasant Hill)
Sun, Dec 9: National Ranking Events: Sprint Qualifier and Final, St. Mary's College, Moraga

For all three days, everyone will be competing on the same courses. In particular, there are no Beginner (White), Novice (Yellow) or Intermediate (Orange) courses. Nevertheless, given the nature of the venues and the courses, some people without a great deal of orienteering experience may wish to give it a try. That was the case the last two years, and those who did go out appeared to enjoy themselves.

Details on the Sprint San Francisco 2018 web page.

Again, the number of entrants is limited, so don't delay!

Where can I find info about the maps/terrain?

Will the "non-qualifiers" in Rounds 2 and 3 on Saturday still be seeded in some way?

The RouteGadget for Diablo Valley is
I'm not sure when Paso Nogal was used, so I don't have a link. The other maps are new.

Sorry to be a while before adding to this thread; I was away at the US Nationals.

@smittyo: The non-qualifiers in Rounds 2 and 3 are not seeded. There is a window for them to start in, and people essentially walk up and get a start time.

@D-MAN: RouteGadget for Paso Nogal is on Vladimir's GetLost website. I believe this is the correct link, but I haven't been able to actually access the page (which might be a problem on my end).

I spoke with Erin Schirm, and he will try to respond to your question about the two new maps very soon.
