What to Bring: Compass and a sense of direction
Scouts will be paired up and compete for awards to be presented to the first 15 places in each event. The morning sessions will include: instruction in Orienteering for scouts new to the sport, competitions in one of three levels of orienteering courses, and a map skill-building event. Each scout pair will have an opportunity to choose two events in the morning. Competition will be broken into two age groups, under 14 years of age and scouts 14 years of age or older. After a brief break at 1pm, the afternoon event will be a 90 minute Orienteering score course. The event will be completed with awards from the morning events at 5:00pm.
This event is being supported by the NCAC and with the experienced help from the Quantico Orienteering Club (http://qoc.us.orienteering.org/).
Competition will be both on the scout pair level and on the unit level. Each Troop or Crew unit will have a unit score from this event based on the average of the unit's top five pairs from that unit.
