Explanation of Score courses

You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.

Terrain Description

The forest road crosses a field with a gate at either side. Please keep these gates closed at all times – if you find them open, please close them (in case we don’t have enough people to man them).
