Night Orienteering - 2 1/2 hr Score course

Registration 6 pm to 7:30 pm:
Maps at 7:30;
Mass start at 8 pm

Time Table for 1 October 2016:

6:00 - 7:30 pm
Registration for those who haven't registered and signing of the waiver for those who have preregistered. To preregister, send e-mail to 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.

7:30 pm
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.

8:00 pm
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.

Required equipment:
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.
