After Dark Event

Memorial Park


You are all welcome to attend our first 'After Dark event for 2018/19:

Memorial Park, Coventry.  Map Ref SP 322772 on sheet 140. Postcode CV3 6PT will get you close.


The entrance to the Park is off the A429 Coventry to Kenilworth road, close to the junction with Beechwood Avenue. Parking in the park and ride car park.


Organiser: John Middler - e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - tel. 07855 684978.

These events are intended to provide both a challenge to experienced night orienteers and an introduction for novices or newcomers to this version of the sport.  The course will include a number of easier controls, mainly on line features, plus more difficult ones to test skills as experience is gained.

There will only be one course and controls must be visited in ascending order.  Each control will be worth 10 points.  Like a score event, there will be a 45 minute time limit.  Any time over this will incur a penalty of 10 points per minute or part of a minute.  Controls can be missed out but any taken out of sequence will not count. For example, 1-2-3- -5-6 scores 50 but 1-2-5-3-6 only scores 40 because 3 was taken out of sequence. The courses should be planned so that the fastest may possibly clear all controls inside the time limit, but for many it will be a matter of deciding which ones to miss or when to quit and head for the finish.

Start times are from 5.00 to 7.00. Just turn up on the night.

Seniors: £5.00;  Juniors: £1.00. (£1.00 EMIT card hire if you don't have your own).

For further information on any of the events just telephone the Organiser, or contact through the OD web site:  www.Octavian-Droobers.org

Please ensure that you bring sufficient lighting and back up torch.  Hope to see you all there.
