Killingworth - Sunday 29th May

NOTE: you can choose to participate in foot orienteering section only if you wish. While thereare no Blue or Green courses some of the scatter course controls are on or near tracks but sub-juniors would need supervision.

The club will be conducting two events at the same time on the weekend. The club minor event will be a scatter course of 45 minutes duration whereby you collect as many controls as possible in 45 minutes. The first scatter course has been set for competitors of all levels with catching features and tracks throughout the course. The map scale for the foot stages is 1:7500. The Duo Event will be doing the same course but there will be no time limit for Duo competitors. The start area for all competitors will be approximately 1km north of the electricity grid station at Killingworth.

For the Duo competitors an instruction sheet and course overview map is on the club website.

As the Duo course may take a few hours to complete all competitors are advised to bring along the water that they may need for the event and snacks/food for the duration. Completing the course carrying a small camelback would be to your advantage. There will be water available midway through the course.

We are in need of at least three more volunteers to assist with manning the start finish area. This event will incorporate a manned remote control as well as controls for competitors making a transition from foot to bike and finishing the event.

As it is a first time event , the organisers have tried to design the courses to allow all competitors to finish as well as providing some fun and challenging sections, the single tracks for the bike legs are still in good condition and the controls have been placed to give you some great riding!

Parking: due to wet weather parking will be on the verge of the road (Greg has brush-cut to allow you to get a bit off the road) unless you have a decent 4wd. Alternately those with MTB's could park back at the electricity complex and have a short warm-up ride to the assembly/start area.

Remember to bring along plenty of food and water!
