In orienteering predetermined locations are plotted onto a map. Competitors use a map and compass to locate this locations. Once found they will find a time stamp hidden.
The cadet will then time stamp their card and move on to finding the next location from the map.
Not all stamps are worth the same number of points. Stamps that are harder to locate or are further afield will sometimes be worth more points.
The team that finishes the fastest with most stamps is declared the winner.
Orienteering requires good physical fitness, the ability to work in a team and excellent map and compass skills.
2659 has been very successful in both mens and women's competition.
This team is comprised of both junior and senior cadets so all interested individuals are encouraged to try out.
