The Bay Area Orienteering Club is pleased to offer the eighteenth annual Scout-O, a cross country map and compass adventure designed to test the map reading ability, compass skills and woodsman savvy regardless of experience.

Cub Scouts of all ages are welcome.  No prior experience needed. Instruction will be offered prior to the event so that all Scouts, regardless of prior experience, will be able to take part in the actual competition.  There will be courses of four distinct levels of difficulty, so that no Scout should encounter a challenge beyond his capabilities.  Be prepared and head over to BAOC's website for printable maps and instructions.

Important information can be found in this document.  Here are the important points:

- Scouts will run the course in teams of two, shadowed by an adult, $5 each.
- First team of all the scouts attending will run at 10 am.  Start times are spaced 2 minutes apart and by course.  Start times are set by event organizer.
- There is a slightly different additional event at 1:30 that is optional.  Scouts do not have to stay for that but they can.
- Every participating scout will earn a patch.
- We need to pre-register with names and how teams will be paired up.

An evite will be coming to you.  Sign up by October 7th and contact event coordinator Susan Kim if you have any questions.
