10.1.16 Killerton Score Event


Organiser's Comments: The day went well and the weather was kind and mild for us. We had quite a few familes to this score event, some of whom are fairly new to orienteering. This type of event lends itself to family groups as well as the more experienced, with two standards of score to run. My thanks go to everyone who helped, particularly Matt and Roger for their respective officials' roles.

Now on to the next event at Hound Tor on Sunday 14th February.     Tim Gent

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
