Results - Odell Park Score-"O"

Date: May 4, 1996
Location: Odell Park, Fredericton
Meet Director: Kathleen Cameron
Course Setter: Greg Cameron and Graham St-Laurent
Controller: David Cameron
The Score 'O' event is an annual meet at Odell Park in Fredericton. All participants receive the same map and the same start time with a one hour time limit. Each control is identified on the map and clue sheet but no courses exist. A point value is assigned to each control depending on the degree of difficulty in finding it or reaching it. In this manner, a participant is obliged to optimize the points which s/he can obtain by balancing a selected route against the time available. Penalty points are assigned for each minute which a participant runs over the time limit.

This year, an additional course was set which had only the contour lines shown on the map (no trails, rocks, etc. - oh, the wonders of OCAD). Different controls were hung for the Contour-'O' than for the regular Score-'O' map and participants were compelled to seek out reentrants and creeks.

The meet was well run (congratulations to the youthful organizers) and enjoyed by all.
