Registration Form Registration is CLOSED for this year!

This event is restricted to Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, COOL members and other youth or school groups 6TH GRADE AND UP.

Format of Event: Basic course instruction will be available first. The youth will then run in pairs on standard orienteering courses. A variety of courses will be offered for different skill levels. There will be a picnic lunch break (groups must provide their own lunch) followed by an afternoon mass start score-O event. Youth will compete in the same pairs on a scattered course where each control found increases their score. Awards will be given for each course and for an overall group score.

There are to be two youth per team. Each group may have one three-person team to allow for odd numbers.  White and Yellow teams must be entered based on the age of the oldest team member. Individual ribbons will be presented to the top 25% of teams in each division for both AM and PM courses (at a minimum the top three teams will earn awards).  Group awards will be presented to the top five overall groups.  To be eligible for group awards you must have a minimum of 3 teams running in both the AM and PM.  Smaller groups may wish to combine to meet this requirement.

COOL members should check out the special league notes here.
