The Event:

Help for beginners: The Yellow Course is suitable for complete beginners with no experience. DFOK club members will be available to help you. If you have any questions before the event please email newcomers@dfok.co.uk

Schools Cups: There are 2 School Cups, one for the best Primary School and one for the best Secondary School. The top 2 competitors from each school score points towards the School Cups. All School Cup results and updated school league tables will be made available here shortly following the event.

What is the Kent Orienteering League (KOL)
The KOL was introduced for the 2007/08 season, and is run by the Saxons and DFOK clubs and replaces the popular Saturdays Series League. The League provides a series of friendly, fun orienteering events on Saturdays in Kent and South East London aimed at families, experienced orienteers and complete beginners.

What equipment do you need?
Nothing special. Old trainers if it looks muddy, something waterproof if wet. A compass is useful but not essential. Full leg cover rather than shorts for the woodland events and, of course, a watch is very useful to check your time out on the course.

Start Time & Registration:

Start times: 11.00 - 12.30
No need to pre-enter or be a member of an orienteering club, just turn up on the day. Please visit registration between 10.45 and 12.15 to buy a map and hire a dibber (which records your time electronically) if you don’t already have one.

Yellow Course competitors will be given their orienteering map at registration so you can plan your route and ask any questions. All other competitors receive their map at the Start

FEES:
Senior & Family Group  6
(BOF members 5)
Juniors 2
Dibber Hire 1 (30 for loss)

If you are planning to bring a
