Enjoy the beautiful woods surrounding the Royal Roads Campus with a map. This event will be organized around a Score-O format. In a Score-O, control flags can be collected in any order within a given time limit. The object of a Score-O will be to find as many controls flags as possible and return to the finish within the time limit of 60 minutes or 90 minutes depending on which course you at on. Overdue participants will incur a penalty for each minute late. This event will feature two course options:
Score-O Easy - Controls are on or near trails or prominent landmarks. Navigation should be easy. Great for those new to orienteering, families and those who don't want to be out too long. 60 minute time-limit.
Score O Advanced - Controls in more challenging off-trail locations. Navigation may require some compass work. Great for those who want to challenge themselves by travelling cross-country and covering greater distances between controls. Note: Not recommended for those new to orienteering. 90 minute time-limit.
Registration: 12:30 - 1:00 pm. Note: Please pre-register online in advance of the event to make sure sufficient maps will be available.
Please make sure to arrive in plenty of time to register. There will be a mass start at 1:00 pm ! Depending on volume of participants, there may be an option of a later mass start of 1:15 pm. Sorry, no individual start options as this will just confuse us.
