So you have been asked to help/organise/plan an event for SN, well you started right by coming here first. Whether you are supporting a junior league/Saturday open series event or a National, the information on these pages can be useful. This web page has a collection of links, ideas and guidelines that may help you through making that first event a success. If you can't find what you need here, please contact





  • Useful mapping information is maintained by BF including symbol sets for OCAD at the British Orienteering mappers support page
  • OCAD HowTo's, visual guides to using OCAD.
  • Most of the club maps are in OCAD version 9.2. (Do not later versions of OCAD: any map updates made are not back-compatible so may cause problems).
  • You can also use CONDES if you have a licensed copy, or Open Orienteering Mapper
