The Spring Super Challenge Series

The Spring of 2006 brings a new event to our Orienteering club

The Spring Super Challenge Series

Modeled after the Thomass Series which originated with the Ontario 1993 Junior program, this exciting navigation challenge was developed to help keep our orienteers sharp and to provide some orienteering fun for everyone.

The top finishers of each race receive points in decreasing scale starting from 50 points.  For example, if there are 15 participants, first place will get 50, second place - 49 etc.    An individual's top 4 races count toward their series total.
