Tahquitz BSA Camp

September 16, 2018
Sunday

Course setter Mike Reason is preparing a two-course day which should serve as a great pre-season training opportunity for COOL units along with other orienteers.

The usual entry fee gets you both courses.

The assembly area will be different from past years at Tahquitz: we will assemble in the parking lot on the north side of Highway 38 instead of to the south. Please pay attention to the directions below and orienteering signs.

The day starts with a score-O event with a mass start at 10:00am. The start/finish will be located about 150 meters from the parking lot; please allow sufficient time for registration and the short walk to the start. Find as many controls as you can within the 45 minute limit. You can start late, but penalties will start at 10:45 (10 points for each minute or fraction of a minute). Afterwards, join us for course reviews to hone your technique while you recuperate.

Then use your skills to see how fast you can make it through our sprint courses. The sprint start will be located about 100 meters from the parking lot. The sprint start will be open from Noon to 1:00pm. Three courses are offered:

  • Standard White course
  • Short sprint - appropriate for skill levels yellow and above
  • Long sprint - appropriate for skill levels orange and above

Course time limit - one hour. Course closure 3:00pm.
Second courses will only be allowed at the Meet Director's discretion.

The 10:00am score-O is automatically included with your registration, please indicate when registering which course you plan to run for the sprint.

COOL memberships for the 2018-2019 season are now available for units wanting to register new members. COOL memberships from 2017-2018 will remain valid until the end of October.

This event is NOT eligible for COOL League scoring. The scoring season will begin in November. See the proposed schedule on the COOL League page.
