Contactless SI-Air SIAC Finger Stick Notes

  • Contactless SI-Air SIAC finger sticks are available to borrow at check-in. If not returned, you must pay $100 to replace them or $50 if borrowing a regular SI finger stick.
  • These are super fun to use in a fast-paced event because you just need to wave your stick within ~1m of the control to punch it, rather than having to carefully insert a non-SI air finger stick into the hole. They are faster and you don't need to wait in line to punch a busy control.
  • When punching with a SIAC, the control will not beep or flash, instead your SIAC will beep and flash. As you run away from the control, hold the stick near your ear and/or look to see the tip flashing to make sure that the punch was recorded. In rare cases that it doesn't beep, try to punch again and if that doesn't work, insert the stick into the control until the control beeps and flashes like with a regular SI stick.
  • The contactless SI-Air function is only turned on if you punch the Clear and Check controls. The stick should beep when you have punched the Check control properly, so try it again to be sure.
  • Important: Don't get within 2m of the Finish control unless you really want to finish the course.

2023 Wednesday Evening Orienteering (WEO) Series

  • Regular orienteering on Wednesday evenings - this means in-person with control flags and SI units in the terrain from 6:30-8pm on the day of the event.
  • You will need an SI stick; you can borrow one from the club on the night of the event if you do not own one.
  • You will have to pre-register for the events.
    • You can pay for each session separately
    • You can sign up for the series and get a discount
  • The last day to register for each Wednesday event is the Monday evening before it to guarantee we have a map printed for you.
  • You will need to be a 2023 member of Foothills Orienteering (FWOC), a 2023 member of another Canadian orienteering club, or purchase a “day of the event membership”.
  • We will be using Maprun6 so, if you registered for the event, you can run anytime if you do not want to run on the evening of the event.
  • There will be about 20 Wednesday Evenings in the series.
