Meet Director's Guide

You can find a complete meet director's guide for local meets on the USOF Web pages (look here ). The description below of what needs to be done to run a local orienteering meet is much more abbreviated and tailored to a small club like WPOC.   The task of Meet Director varies from club to club.  At WPOC, the person who is titled Meet Director is primarily responsible for designing the courses and setting out the controls for an event.  Some of the other tasks listed below will be be done by another people, often designated Event Coordinator or Publicity Coordinator or Volunteer Coordinator.
