Night Score Cup 2014

2014 sees the fourth Night Score Cup series, with 5 events running on consecutive Thursday evenings between the end of January and end of February. Open to all, this series is suitable for everyone from novice to experienced orienteers.

Each event comprises of a single 45 minute, mass start, score race. Collect as many controls from the 25 available as you can in within the 45 minute time limit. Each control is worth 5 points; there is a time penalty of -5 points for each 30 seconds (or part thereof) over the time allowance.

Registration will be open from 6.30pm, with call up and briefing at 7.10pm. Maps will be released at the mass start at 7.15pm. Course closes at 8.15pm. Entry fee is £3.00 for LOG/BO members (adults), £4.00 for non-members, £2.00 juniors (all) and includes SI dibber hire.

The orienteer’s final score from the series will be based on their best 4 scores from the races, with the planners of each event being awarded a ‘joker’, which means an extra score that is the average of their other scores from across the series. Winners awards wills be awarded in each of the following categories:

  • Series Champion
  • Highest Scoring Female
  • Highest Scoring Junior (M/W<20)
  • Highest Scoring Veteran (M/W>50)
