Orienteering Cincinnati invites you to
The Billy Pig  and  The Piglet
Sunday,  November 18, 2001 at 9:00 am
Miami Whitewater Forest, Hamilton County Park District, Harrison, Ohio
course setting by Steve Vaughan

            "The Billy Pig" and "The Piglet" are long-course events, in the fine tradition
of the famous Billy Goat.  The Billy Goat and its imitation "goats" around the country
have become extremely popular.   Besides the original Billy Goat, better known
ones include the Golden Goat, the Rocky Mountain Goat, the Bubba Goat and the
Possum Trot.  In the proud tradition of Cincinnati's flying porkers, we've decided to
call our version "The Billy Pig".  Pre-registration is strongly recommended.
Please use the entry form below.  Please note that late entrants will be subject to a
late fee and may need to mark their own map while on the clock.
            A "goat" is a long distance, mass-started orienteering event.  Rules vary slightly,
but in general orienteers must visit controls in order, but may skip any one control on the
course.  There also is usually one or more "split controls", for example control # 4 will
have two circles on your map labeled 4A and 4B.  You may choose which one to visit,
but need not visit both.   Making the correct decision for your abilities could move you
up in the race standings.  The 2001 Billy Pig will be 13 to 15 kilometers straight-line
distance, and The Piglet will be 6 to 7 kilometers.  Controls will be intermediate
(orange) to advanced difficulty.  There will be a 5-hour time limit.
            A beginner level white course will also be offered, starting at 10 am.
No pre-registration is needed for the white course.  White course entry fee will be
$4 for members or $6 for non-members.
