CNOC Summer Series


The CNOC Summer evening series is back with a new format.  
The dates are as follows:
Tuesday 14th May    Curragh Lumville
Tuesday 21st May    Donadea
Tuesday 28th May    Hillwood
Tuesday 11th June   Curragh Sunnyhill
Tuesday 18th June   Hollywood + Barbeque

This year the events will be Scatter events with 3 courses – Long, Medium, Short.  This means that there will be (in this case) 25 controls, you visit the required number of these in whatever order you decide, the time you take is your result.  

The details may vary slightly between the events, but in general these will be the course details:
Long Course – punch 22 of the 25 controls, optimum route about 6 km-ish, technically as difficult as we can make it.
Medium Course – punch 15 of the 25 controls, optimum route about 4 km-ish, technically medium to difficult.  The controls will be numbered so that the lower numbers are nearer the Start/Finish.
Short Course – punch 7 controls, optimum route about 3 km.  The optimum route will visit controls nos. 1 to 7 and will be technically easy.
