HOC Spring Score-O Series

HOC is excited to offer a Spring Score-O series for 2020!

Each event will be a stand-alone event (you don't have to do them all):

  • Event #1 Long Lake, Sunday April 26th, 2020
  • Event #2 Fleming Park, Thursday May 14th, 2020, World Orinteering Day
  • Event #3 Long Lake, Sunday May 24th, 2020
  • Event #4 Hemlock Ravine, Saturday June 13th, 2020, Ian Clark Memorial

Score-O is a fun, choose-your-own-adventure style of orienteering where you decide in which order you'll find the controls. HOC Spring Score-O events feature:

  • 1-hour time limit
  • Mass Start
  • Maps will be given out at the start time (planning and strategizing is part of your race time)
  • Controls will be worth 10, 20, or 30 points (as marked on map) based on difficulty and distance from Start/Finish
  • Penalties: lose 10 points/up to each min over time limit, to a max of up to 5 min. Over 5 mins past time limit will result in an Over Time disqualification.

Race Scoring

The top finisher in each category is the person/team who finishes with the most Score-O points the fastest.

Series Scoring

A competitor's best 3/4 results will be counted. In the case of a tie the 4th event will be used to break the tie. The top finisher in each category earns 100 pts and the remaining competitors are scaled to that based on their Score-O points vs winner's Score-O points. In the case of more than one sweeper (finding all controls in time limit) the sweepers will be scaled by time, then the remaining scaled to the slowest sweeper.
