Orienteering Cincinnati   invites you to
The Billy Pig  and  The Piglet
Sunday,  November 17, 2002 at 10:00 am
Fort Ancient State Historic Site, Lebanon, 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.
(This year, there will be a map exchange, and you may skip one control on each map).  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.
(There may be a multi-control split this year).  Making the correct decision for your abilities
could move you up in the race standings.  The 2002 Billy Pig will be 12 to 15 kilometers
straight-line distance, and The Piglet will be 5 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 10:30 am.
No pre-registration is needed for the white course.  White course entry fee will be
$4 for members or $6 for non-members, plus the $2 park entry fee.
