POTTERIES ORIENTEERING CLUB

Park Hall Country Park - 1 hour Score Event and Picnic

Sunday 15th August 2021

FINAL DETAILS

 Parking:     We are using the car park known as "The Gulch" (nearest postcode ST3 5AY) which is the 2nd turning on the right approximately half a mile from the junction of Hulme Road and the A5272. The start, finish and download/registration will all be a short distance from the parking area.

 

Upon arrival please visit the POTOC tent and confirm yourself as a starter so we can ensure all runners are accounted for at the finish.

 

Post-Event Social : It has been decided due to the Covid situation to have a picnic this year rather than a BBQ. Please bring your own food.

 

Hired dibbers:      If you have hired a dibber please collect it from the POTOC tent in plenty of time before the start.

 

Toilets:               Limited toilet facilities available at the Park Hall visitor centre which will be open from 10am.

 

Start time:           Mass start at 11am.

 

Juniors:               There are 10 controls of a yellow/orange standard which are suitable for juniors. These controls will be indicated on the map.

 

Scoring System:   There are 30 controls available with each control worth 10 points. If you arrive late at the finish penalty points are incurred at 10 points per minute or part minute. E.g you get 25 controls but finish in 62 minutes, your points total will be 230  (25 x 10 = 250 minus 20 penalty points).

 

Punching:             Sportident (not SIAC enabled)

 

Organiser: Gordon Witte and Marian Denham 

Planner: Andrew Rowe
