for the 3 October 2020 Night-O
at Forbes State Forest Ski Area
Below you will find a link to the
map for the course. It
is a .pdf file. It is a 1:10000 scale
map with 5 m contours. You can print the course on a regular
8 1/2 x
11 page. When you do the printing, be
sure to choose "Actual size", not "Fit" and not "Custom scale".
Either of these last two choices will cause the printed map
distorted in some way, i.e., mess up the scale. There is also
a link to the control descriptions page (another .pdf file).
Finally, there is a link to a third file that provides
some map and course notes. Although
this course was designed for a night event, it is NOT recommended that
you try it at night; finding the control locations at night without
standard markings is extremely difficult.
Control locations are marked in the forest with florescent
Each tape has written on it "WPOC" and a number.
The number on the tape is NOT the same as the control number
in the descriptions or on the map. It is possible that a few
tapes have disappeared.
It is also possible that a some tapes have the writing faded
- weather does that. There are no normal control flags nor
permanent markers and no reflective tape used to mark control locations for night events. The tapes will remain in place only through October 31. STAY SAFE OUT THERE!
