On arrival at the campsite you will check in and then be allocated a 5m x 5m camping square, into which all of your tentage when pitched must fit.
In accordance with POR, mixed teams tentage is acceptable. Permission for this to take place needs to be given by Parents / Guardians using the Hiker Information Form. Nights Away Passports are not required as this is covered under the Overland Hike.
At Check In you will also be given your start time for the second day if you have managed to complete day one in the allocated time.
If Scout Teams have left their 2nd tent at the start, this will be available for collection at the Campsite Check In.
You will be given your pitch number and a member of the Campsite Welfare team will escort you to your allocated pitch. At this time the Campsite First Aid, Latrines, Water and food waste disposal area will be pointed out.
Consideration should be given to all teams whether getting in late or leaving early on Sunday as there may be teams trying to sleep either when you arrive or are leaving.
The Welfare Personnel will advise the team that they will be judged on Campcraft, Cooking & Inspection. It is the team’s responsibility to contact a Cook Judge when they want their food (all food consumed at the campsite) judged. The Cook Judges are identifiable by their clearly marked tabards
Campcraft Judges will start to allocate marks once you have arrived at your pitch. There is no need to approach the Campcraft Judges.
Inspection will take place both at the team’s pitch prior to departure and at Check Out.
Campcraft - 15 points
You will be marked on your camping standard. This will include
Cooking - 35 points
Inspection - 20 points
The points for inspection are awarded for both how the team members and the camping area look when you leave on Sunday morning. You must make sure that there is no litter left on your allocated area and that all team members are wearing the appropriate clothing for the prevailing weather conditions.
ALL TEAMS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TAKING THEIR OWN RUBBISH AWAY FROM THE CAMPSITE (with the exception of food waste).
Menu – 30 points
The menu is worth 30 points for your Team.
Teams hand their menus in at the start and these are then passed to the judges at the campsite where they will be reviewed for the following:
It is the team’s responsibility to present themselves to the Campsite Check Out on the Sunday morning at the time allocated to them on arrival. The teams will be given a new white coloured log card for use on the second day. All teams have a maximum of 7 hours to complete the second day’s hike. This 7 hours starts from their allocated departure time. If a team is late to check out they will be expected to wait until an opportunity arises for them to check out but their 7 hours will have already commenced.
Scout Teams may hand in their second tent when checking out on the Sunday morning. This will be transported to the Finish for their collection on arrival.
