Parking and Registration
Parking will be at the car park outside the college. Ideally park in the carpark just off Stranmillis Road, beside the roundabout. Postcode BT9 5DT. Then cross the road at the zebra crossing and walk into the college grounds using the path on the right side of the gate. Follow the footpath ahead, up the hill passing the main building on your left until you reach the top of the hill. Betty’s coffee shop is in the Central Building on your left, at reception just inside the building. Alllow 5 minutes to walk from the carpark.
Registration will be at Betty’s – the College coffee shop. Meeting at 7.15pm for a briefing.
Start will be at 7.30pm and finishing around 8.30pm.
This will be a “Scatter”, which is similar to a Score. We don’t often have Scatters in NI, but they are popular in Australia. So the challege is to collect a set number of points and return to finish, rather than collect as may controls as you can in a set time limit. Controls will be allocated points, with the challenge to gather 100 points, since we are celebrating the Centenary of the college. So you will need to keep a running total in your head, or maybe carry a small pencil?? We are inviting college students to take part and so the controls with points will be in areas where there is some light. However to balance the challenge, orienteers will be required to also visit 4 zero point controls which are in unlit areas.
Toilets will be available near the Coffee shop which stays open until 9pm. Bring a fiver or a card with you!
