VIII TA OK rogain
On Saturday, 6 October 2007
Event Centre: Jägala-Joa
- The object of the competition is to score points within the time limit
by finding checkpoints located on the competition terrain. The value of the
checkpoints varies, depending on the difficulty-distance from the event centre,
from 2 to 5, and is equal to the decimal place of the checkpoint number.
Checkpoints may be visited in any order (score orienteering).
- The competition starts at 9.30 a.m.
- The control time is 5.30 p.m.
- Competition materials are delivered to a team representative from 8.30
1) Event maps: one for each team member;
2) Number bibs: one for each team member.
- The SportIdent electronic punching system will be used for recording visits
to the checkpoints.
- In the event of malfunction of the SI-station or any doubt of malfunction,
the event map margin shall be punched with the punch at the checkpoint marker.
The checkpoint site is additionally marked with small pieces of paper so
that the competitors could be sure that the checkpoint was there in case
both the control flag and SI-station are missing. A visit to such checkpoint
can be proved by picking up one scrap of a paper.
- A team's score shall be the value of the checkpoints visited less penalties.
Late returns are penalised by deducting points: up to 1 minute - 1 point,
for exceeding each next full minute - 1 point. Teams finishing more than
30 minutes late shall be deemed ineligible for a placing. The team with
the greater score, or in the event of a tie, the team which finished earlier,
shall be awarded the higher placing.
- Number bibs must be pinned on a visible place and must be worn during
the whole competition (from start to finish) by all members of the team.
- Each team must remain together, i.e. within eyesight of each other so
that the number bibs are clearly visible, for the entire period from the
start until their retirement from the course.
- Competitors shall not deliberately rest within sight of a checkpoint.
- On the course, i.e. during the competition outside the event centre, competitors
may use only food or other supplies taken along from the event centre. The
only exception is drinking water offered by the organiser, or assistance
provided in the event of emergency.
- The only navigational aids that may be carried on the course are maps
provided by the organiser, compasses and watches. It is also prohibited to
use any kind of computerised devices.
- If one or more members of the team want to retire from the course, the
whole team must return to the event centre and they are deemed to have finished.
Those members of the team who want to continue can re-register as a new team,
whereas the points scored for so far visited checkpoints are not counted.
