12:30 pm to 2:00 pm Registration and starts. (You can register and start at any time during this window. Start early if you want to try multiple courses, or if you expect to take along time on your course.) 1:00 pm Basic Beginner Instruction will be offered at 1:00 pm in the vicinity of the Registration table. 4:00 pm All courses close at 4:00 pm. (We'll start picking up controls at 4:00 pm. Out of consideration for the meet volunteers, please return to the Finish no later than 4:00 pm even if you haven't completed your course.)
Courses: This meet will offer standard Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses. You can find an explanation of the orienteering course color scheme at our FAQs page.
- The Beginner courses (White and Yellow) will be suitable for Beginners of all ages -- kids, adults, families, etc.
- You can complete any of the courses as an Individual or as a Team. (Teams of just two or three work better than large teams.)
Maps: 1:10,000, 5m contour interval
Notes from the Course Setter:
- Water will be available on the Orange, Green, and Red courses.
- Watch out for fallen-down barbed wire, especially where gaps in fences are mapped (but even near mapped fences as well).
- Other than the large roads and trails, mapped trails can be hard or very hard to spot in the field.
- The White course is harder than a normal White course. Due to a lack of trails, fences are heavily used as linear handrail features to be followed to get from one control to another. The course has streamers to follow in two different places: early in the course, streamers lead from a control to a fence, and later in the course, an entire leg is streamered.
