Here is an example of what an orienteering course might look like in McKaig.

The course map we give you will direct you to go from one location to another. Your job is to get from place to place as efficiently as you can. At each location there will be an orange and while "control" flag with a designation. Visit every location if you can  

There will be an optional smartphone QR code tracking system available - no app required.
