Test out your troop or crew member’s navigation skills at the 16th NCAC Annual Scout Orienteering meet on Saturday, May 1st. Over 45 orienteering controls will be placed at Prince William Forest for troop teams of 10 scouts (5 pairs buddy system) to identify in 90 minutes. Each orienteering control has a different point value based on the difficulty level and distance from the starting point.
The event is designed around the idea of competing as a unit (Troop or Crew) to gather the highest score than the other scouting units called the Score-O. This event is open to all Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and other appropriately aged Scouting groups; minimum age for this event is 10 and a half years old.
Each “team” of ten scouts will select the time of day to start on the course when they register for the event. The cost is $70 per team or about $7 per scout and includes (12) event patch and five course maps that the team gets to keep. Unit registration and additional information, including COVID safety precautions that are being taken, can be found at https://scoutingevent.com/082-2021ScoutOrienteering
