Scout Orienteering Festival for Cub, Boy, Brownie, Girl, Venture Scouts, and Scouters
LOCATION: Beaumont Scout Reservation
8:30 AM to Noon
REGISTRATION: Emerson Conference Center Area
No advanced registration is required. We just ask that you send an estimated attendance to David Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know how many to expect.
COST: $5.00 per scout or adult. (The cost includes the map.)
PATCHES & SEGMENTS:
- Festival Patch and 2014 Segment $3.00
- Segment alone $1.00
- Festival Patch alone $2.50
COURSES: The format for the scout competition course will be a SCORE ORIENTEERING format with 30 controls. Each control will have a point value from 5-30 points, depending on its location and difficulty. The close and easy controls are not worth as many points as those farther away and more difficult to find. There is a 60-minute time limit with a 10 point penalty for each minute over the time limit.
There will be 6 mass starts every 15 minutes from 9:15 am to 10:30 am.
A non-competitive beginner’s (Map Hike) course will also be available for cub scouts, first time orienteers and recreational use.
