Registration for those who haven't registered and signing of the waiver for those who have preregistered. To preregister, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and state how many of you are coming and what your names are. Payment will be collected at the meet; the fee is $5 per person and each person will get a map. Preregistration is preferred so that we are sure we have enough maps.
Map distribution and briefing about the event. At this time, we will want to make sure everyone is properly equipped for night orienteering. The course is a score-O with 40 controls worth varying numbers of points. All controls will be marked with the usual orange and white nylon bag and have a rod wrapped in reflective tape directly above the bag.
Mass Start for everyone. You will have 2 1/2 hours to find as many points as you can. Lateness penalties will be rather severe. The course closes promptly at 10:30 pm; you must return by this time to avoid being penalized. All participants must return to the start/finish by 10:45 pm because we will begin taking down the course at that time.
Compass (we will loan you one if necessary),
Whistle (we will sell you one if you don't have one),
Light (with spare batteries or a second backup light - we will NOT have spares).
It is possible that you will be walking/running along a gravel road that carries some night traffic. Therefore, we recommend that you wear some bright colored outer clothing.
