2020 Series Points
Series points are awarded to members who run as an individual on the correct minimum course length - which is easy for local ADHOC events as everyone needs to run the long course, except for U10s and U12s who can earn points on either Short or Long course.
A scaling factor applies for each age group so that everyone is awarded points based on their amended minutes per kilometre.
Your best 5 ADHOC event scores count plus you must have achieved 1 OWA State Orienteering League event score.
Members who do not assist formally at an event in the season will be ineligible for series awards.
Much more information is located here on the OWA page, their system is similar.

Albany and Denmark Hinterland Orienteering Club (ADHOC) was formed in 2014 by a group of local enthusiasts with the aim of bringing orienteering to the Great Southern. We have conducted the 'Albany Trail Run' in 2016 and 2017 as our major fund-raising venture for club equipment.
