Borrow a Si-Air (SIAC) Stick for out-of-town competitions
Foothills Orienteering (FWOC) has Si-Air (SIAC) finger sticks available for members to borrow for out-of-town competitive events that use the SI-Air contactless punching system. See this document for more details on the borrowing procedures.
Members can borrow a SIAC under the following conditions:
- The Borrower agrees to reimburse the club $100 if the SIAC is damaged or not returned within one month of the end of the last event they are borrowing it for.
- The Borrower informs the “FWOC SIAC Librarian” which upcoming events the SIAC is needed for and promptly returns the SIAC within one month of the end of the last event.
- The Borrower does not use a FWOC SIAC in more than 20 orienteering courses per year.
The FWOC SIAC Librarian maintains a spreadsheet of SIAC numbers on the club website along with who the SIAC is assigned to and for which events/dates. A SIAC number will be reserved once one is requested and where possible will be the same number as previously borrowed.
If you are a current FWOC member and are interested in borrowing a SIAC and agree to the above conditions, you can request to borrow a SIAC by emailing [email protected] with the name and dates of the event(s) and optionally: the preferred SI number from the spreadsheet of SIAC numbers.
Arranging a time to pickup the SIAC (usually at a Wed night event or at the FWOC Librarian's house) can take a few weeks depending on schedules, so don't expect to get a SIAC at the last minute. However, a SIAC number can be reserved for you as soon you email the confirmed dates for your competition.
