Pre Event Info

Draft Flyer:  Saxons Regional at Hindleap Warren, using the facilities of Hindleap Warren Outdoor Education Centre.

This allows courses to be set from the centre of Hinleap Warren, taking advantage of the best Ashdown heathland and forest features. The junior courses will not cross any roads, (Y,O,LG).

All courses have the same start. The longer courses will have a separate finish.

String Course: A string course will be available for the junior members, with a theme of
Winnie the Pooh. Why not combine the event with a trip to Pooh Sticks bridge at 100 acre
wood. It is a 5 minutes drive east towards Hartfield. The café website gives details.

Safety: Any competitor travelling alone is advised to leave something of value that they will
not forget (eg car keys) at Enquiries, with their name, club, class/course and start time, plus
an emergency contact name and number.
All competitors are advised to carry a whistle. Should the weather conditions dictate that
cagoules should be worn, then this will be advertised in the car parks and on the way to the
Start. Come prepared.

Control descriptions will be available in the start lanes.
Some of the courses have many controls. You will have time at the timed out crossings to turn the
descriptions over to get them in to your holders.
You MUST download, even if you retire.
Starts : There are pre‐allocated times, (see Fabian4). Please be on time.
Road Crossings:

Courses Short Green to Brown have 3 road crossings of roads, 2 of which are fully timed out
crossings. 
All roads except at road crossings are out of bounds.

There will be additional Out of Bounds areas marked as purple hashing. These are
environmentally sensitive areas. The courses are planned so that you should not cross these
areas.

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
