Format: This is a fun team event for mixed ability teams. It is a variation of a team scatter event with the added interest and excitement generated by a progression of relay change-overs. The teams of three will be given five pre-marked courses to complete – School course (easy) at 1:2500 scale, School course (moderate) 1.5km at 1:2500 scale. Street course scatter 2.5km, Bush course (moderate) 3km; Bush course (hard) 4km. Each course must be completed separately, with only two of the team members and maps allowed out on a course at any time. One of the team members must always be ‘in bedlam’ at the start/changeover area until all five courses are complete. A change over is by touch of hands. The teams has to include a female and either a junior (M/W 16 or younger) or a super vet (M/W 55 or older) Each of the team members has to complete at least one course. Adults may accompany children on the street course.

SI timing will be used. SI stick hire $2 per individual. SI sticks must be cleared before using a second time.

Catering: The Hilliard SS Chaplaincy Committee will be catering. This arrangement will allow us access to spacious covered area and toilet amenities adjacent to the school tuck shop.
