The Bay Area Orienteering Club is pleased to offer the nineteenth 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 sample maps and instructions.

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

- Scout need to run in pairs with an adult trailing behind.
- 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.
- Every participating scout will earn a patch.
- We need to pre-register with names and how teams will be paired up.

Sign up by this Friday and contact event coordinator Susan Kim if you have any questions.
