They will be simple events using the well tested format – the maps will be from Open Orienteering Maps – largely black and white representations of the chosen area, with streets marked on as black lines – no buildings to act as identifying features – so you’ll need good contact with the map.  All “controls” will be lampposts.  Individual lampposts will not be marked on the map – just those chosen as control sites.  Every lamppost is marked (somewhere on it!) by the council with a number.  Along with the map will be a card to write down the lamppost number when you get there, so bring a pen and a watch!  The maps should be on waterproof paper, but a map bag might be needed (though we should have some spares). The cost will be £2 for seniors.  Unfortunately, as the events are on public roads, juniors (Under 16s) can only take part if they are accompanied by a parent due to BOF insurance requirements. High viz/reflective clothing is required for safety (compulsory). Don’t forget:   pen/pencil,   watch,   £2,   map bag,   head torch,  hi-viz clothing.

The events will all be mass start at 6:30pm with a 45 minute time limit. Registration is from 6:15pm. 10 points for each correct lamppost, 10 point deducted for every minute (and part minute) late back. This year, locations will be from a pub or near someone’s house so that we can have some social time afterwards for those that want it.
