Control at Festival Park The POTOC local events provide courses for beginners and club orienteers of different standards. Registration is from 10:00 am to 12:00. To offset the cost of staging these events, a fee of £5·00/£2·50 will be charged (reduced to £4·00/£2·00 for BOF members of POTOC). It is best to come early, at 10:00 if possible.

At the event, you will be asked to complete a registration slip. If you would prefer to prepare your registration slip[s] in advance, you can download blank slips.

POTOC normally offer 4 courses at each local event:

Easy
equivalent to Yellow, about 1.0 - 1.5 km (course mainly on paths)

equivalent to Orange, about 2.0 - 2.5 km (course sometimes veering off paths)
Short/Long Hard

At some events an exercise (for example, a map-memory course) may replace one of the Long courses.
