Maytime Scamper-O - evening Orienteering score event, Wednesday 24 May 2017

This years event will take place in Gradbach. The format is like previous years and similar to MDOC Countryside score events. Each entrant will be given a pre-marked map with questionnaire sheet – questions will be something like “number on telegraph post N side of path.  

Routes are on on public rights of way, you decide your own, which controls to visit. Time limit is 90 minutes. Points are deducted for taking more than that. All points are lost if you're more than 10 minutes late.

 You can enter individually or in pairs etc.  Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone not used to this type of event may feel more confident doing it as one of a pair, and might find it more fun.

Please bring full waterproofs, compass, whistle, pen and plastic bag for your map. Maps and questionnaire will be printed on waterproof paper for the first time, but it can still get soggy and difficult to write on when wet.

There's no pre-entry, but I will be conducting a straw poll nearer to the event to estimate how many maps we need to print. 

Entry is £5 with proceeds going to the Clubs development fund. 

Mass Start at 7pm. Registration opens 6.15pm.  Please register by 6.45pm.

Car parking   – Gradbach Public Car Park (GR998662) 

The light hearted (!) post mortem and legendary prize giving will take part in a local pub (TBC).
