1 - Franks Hobbs School / University of Victoria
DATE: Wednesday 18 April, 2012
The Determinator is a five-week series of fun orienteering events aimed at beginners and seasoned orienteers alike. Handicaps will be established as a great equalizer, so that new orienteers have an opportunity to 'catch up' on those experienced to the sport. Don't miss this great series.
WELCOME TO DET #1:
It is important to be at the first Wednesday in order to establish your handicap early. And it is the only time to take advantage of the discounted fee of five races for only $35.
All maps will be printed at the scale of 1: 7,500, comfortably between Classic and Sprint
-- and there also lies the course, not too long and not too short - JUST RIGHT!
