Date: (Sun.) Oct. 14, 2018
Location: Location to be Announced
Event Director: - 925.934.6567
Course Setters: Gavin Wyatt-Mair, Steve Harrison
Type: B; Open Event for non-Scouts — Regular 7-course BAOC event in conjunction with the Scout-O Championships (pending park approval)
As in previous years, there will be an "open" event in conjunction with the 26th annual Scout-O championships.
All the courses will have E-punching. White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Red, and Blue courses will be offered (see below). Grass stickers and poison oak are present, so be sure to wear long pants, and to wear gaiters on the off-trail courses.
The annual Scout-O will be held concurrently with the regular event, so expect a sizable crowd. Although preregistration is required for the Scout-O, it is not required (nor available) for the BAOC B-meet.
BAOC members: Please note that your showing is very good publicity for the club, and sets an example for hundreds of scouts and adults to see!! Please do come, with your best O-gear, a smile, and a word of encouragement for the youngsters.
More information will be available closer to the event.
Registration will be open from 9:00 AM to noon.
Beginner clinics will be available from 9:30 to 10:30 AM. These are short, repeating sessions that introduce orienteering, and provide enough instruction to be able to complete a beginner (White) course.
Starts will be at the usual times: from 10:00 to 12:30.
The Finish will close at 2:00 PM. Everyone must report to the Finish by then, and then to the E-punch download tent (i.e., even if they have not completed their course).
The fees for this event will be posted here closer to the event date.
Course information will be available closer to the event.
