THE EVENT For 20 years the Longhorn Council’s largest Scout event and one of the most popular orienteering events held in the USA. Orienteering is an international sport that consists of finding control markers in the field from locations marked on a map. This year’s competition will start in the main camp area by the dining hall.
Each team gets a 5-color map for each participant 20 minutes before the race starts. There are 75-80 flags/markers shown on the map and you must find all you can in 3.5 hours. Some are easy to find & some are hard. Each flag is worth 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 points, depending on how hard it is to find.
Plan your strategy to find the most flags and maximize your score!! The Orange & White markers in the field are identified with a number to let you know if you have found the control flag. To prove you found the marker you punch the score card with a pin punch that is attached to each marker. Each pin punch has a different pattern.
Orienteering is a team event, so be sure to register by teams of 4-6 Scouts, Venturers, Explorers, Webelos, or Adults. At least TWO registered adults must accompany each Webelos team. Your team needs a compass and a watch or stopwatch so you’ll finish on time.
Participants should bring full canteens or water bottles, and cups for drinking water at water stops. In order to help control litter, no cups are provided at the water stops. The sections of camp we use for orienteering have some areas of thick vegetation and can be very rocky. Wear long pants and good trail shoes or boots.
