This is a Sport Ident (SI) event. There is an SI unit attached to each control, so you will need to bring your SI stick or P-card. There are 26 controls on the long course, so a SI stick is needed for this event. The short and novice courses have under 20 controls so both SI sticks and P-cards are suitable. Cards and sticks are available for hire at the event.
