LOC Weekend Day 1 - Caw

Part of the 2019 LOC National Weekend

Sat 18 May 2019

This is part of the LOC National Weekend, following the event at Stickle Pike on the 19th May, entries will be available in a combined entry form at Fabian 4, to open shortly.

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 will 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.
