Please note that as well as the courses for the Scouts and Guide there are two courses especially for other orienteers. There is a conventional Score Course and a special course to test your mettle. This is a Butterfly Course with a difference. There will be no defined Butterfly loops on your map. You will define the Butterfly Loops you run. There will be a detailed explanation both at Registration and on your map. It is a challenge to see how many 'Butterflies' you can complete in the time available. I will provide pencils but you may wish to bring your own marker. Will you rise to the Challenge?
