Winter Score League

New for this winter is to be a mini league for Thursday nights.  To run alongside the traditional informal Thursday night runs from member’s houses, this year a league of nights events will be organised.  These will also be from member’s houses and take the form of 45 minute score events using fire hydrants, postboxes etc as controls.  The nights these will be taking place will be shown on the calendar.  If possible, if you plan to go, please contact the organiser so that they can have an idea of how many maps to print out. 

Rules are as follows:

  1. The league will consist of approximately 10 (ten) score events.
  2. Points will be scored 25 for 1st, 22 for 2nd, 20 for 3rd.  Then 18, 17, 16 etc.  falling to 1 point.  All finishers will get at least one point.
  3. In the event of a tie in an event equal points will be allocated.
  4. At the conclusion of the league the winner will be the person with the highest cumulative score from five events.
  5. If there is a tie for a place in the league the person with the highest single score will gain the higher place.  If this is tied then the next score(s) will be taken into account.
  6. The organiser will score 25 points.
  7. Controls will be based on fire or water hydrant markers, post boxes or ant street furniture as the organiser deems suitable OR regular orienteering controls.
  8. Points per control will be allocated by the organiser.
  9. The decision of the organiser is final.  There are no grounds to appeal.
  10. Prizes for the league will be awarded at the annual dinner, usually held towards the end of January.  Categories include man, woman, junior, walker.
