Night Terrain 7 - Great Tower

Event date: Wed 20 Feb

The controls, including the finish, will be enabled in contactless mode so that those with SIAC dibbers should not need to physically punch the controls.

If you are using contactless punching there is no need to touch the control boxes, and it has been noted that some runners hit them hard enough to knock them out of the ground and potentially damage the control box. Please don't do this because a failed control would disrupt the event results for all the competitors.

However, note that it will be necessary to punch the start controls which will not be programmed in contactless mode.

Some notes on using SIACs are attached.

There may also be SAFETY controls after the FINISH which must be punched by all runners - this is necessary to enable us to confirm that all runners have returned from the course.
