Map / Terrain
Unsurprisingly, it's a golf course. It includes and has nearby some nicely runnable bits of trees.
Registration and Start times
Probably Registration from 17:45 and starts from 18:00 to 18:45
Competitive courses: one long-ish fairly hard course and one somewhat less so. There might also be a Score course, which will not earn league points.
Shadowing and Juniors. Note that anyone under the age of 14 MUST be accompanied on the course by an adult unless the parent/guardian can convince the organiser of the young orienteer's proven competence at night orienteering. If you shadow a junior on the Short/Long/Score you should declare yourself non-competitive to the organiser if later running one of those courses.
Entry method to be confirmed.
Entries will close a few days before the event. We would very much like to avoid entries on the night as this creates quite a bit of faff and demand for more helpers, potential waste of maps, and uncertainty for you.
Dogs may be taken into the area on leads, but not indoors please.
Contacts / Officials
We hope to get some indoor space at the Macdonald Spey Valley resort, which has toilets, bar, comfy chairs...
Spare torch & whistles is required and mobiles strongly recommended at all NNC events. Random kit checks may take place. An extra top layer and high-vis reflective clothing may also be sensible choices.
