SONiC Series Info
SONiCs are events held during the evening hours of darkness and take place either around streets or in parks/woods. They are score events where you get an hour to visit as many controls as you can, with everyone starting at the same time. For insurance purposes juniors under the age (actual age) of 16 are not allowed to compete in street events unaccompanied. For the street events a small torch is helpful to read the map. For forest events a stronger (head)torch is recommended.
Directions / Parking
Parking at the Fisherman's car park (free after 4pm)
60 minute score, two sets of controls (80s and 90s) plus a changeover control (100). Competitors can start on either set and do as many as they want in any order but then must punch at control 100 before moving onto the 2nd set. Once you have changed over you can't change back.
£4 seniors, £1 juniors (SO juniors free). To ensure that we have enough maps please use the Doodle poll to let us know that you are coming (https://doodle.com/poll/4tni88...).
Mass start 7:30pm
I :7,500 orienteering map
Golf course with some wood. The event will not go on any roads this year so metal studded shoes are suitable.
We will retire to a pub afterwards (most likely the Hawth Park Inn - RH10 1UJ) to finalize the results and discuss our runs.
