Event Location: The next Leinster League event will be held on 22 March 2015 on Bull Island, Dublin. (Grid Reference: O 234 370).
Event Directions and Parking: The event is signposted from the coast road (James Larkin Road). Use the causeway to reach Bull Island, and not the wooden bridge. Parking, registration, start and finish are near the roundabout.
Map: Maps are printed on water resistant material at a scale of 1:5,000 for all courses. The map shows the island in two sections laid out side-by-side on an A3 sheet. Contour interval is 2.5 meters. Power lines are not displayed and the magnetic grid lines run 45 degrees to the edge of the map. The Brown course uses a modified map with only contour, building and marsh detail displayed. Control descriptions for all courses will be available at registration and will also be printed on the map. The Yellow course has a taped route on two legs. This is shown in the text version of the control descriptions, but not on the map.
Terrain: The terrain consists of grass-covered sand dunes with many small paths, isolated trees and man-made features. Marshes are currently wet but are crossable.
Timing: SportIdent (SI) timing will be used. SI cards are available for hire at event registration for €2. You must download your SI card after orienteering, whether you complete the course or not. Otherwise the event organisers will not know if you have finished.
Start-times: 11:00 – 13:00.
Courses close: 15:00.
Registration and Entry Fees: Enter at the event. If you are new to orienteering please let the organisers know and they will show you what to do.
