IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Each Scout and his or her buddy must register for one of the tracks below. Scouters should also register for a track as we encourage participation by everyone, the exception being those that are volunteering. These tracks determine what the Scout or Scouter will do on Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Regardless of the track chosen, each participant (and there buddy) will compete in the night Score-O and will have the opportunity to compete in the individual orienteering championships on Sunday morning.
