Dillo Goat, March 14th, 2015

In a Dillo Goat event, all competitors start at the same time. Unlike traditional events, following a competitor is not only allowed, it's part of the game!

Online registration usually opens about 10 days before the event and closes at noon on the Thursday before the event.

Online registration is currently closed.

You are allowed to skip some of the controls - the meet director will let you know how many. Your success is dependant partially on which control you choose to skip, and how well you fake out any competitors behind you.
   - No beginners please!

The map used at this event includes an extensive number of updates that were made to the SR2 basemap for the last 3 Texas Junior Orienteering camps held at Sid Richardson.

The legs used in the advanced courses for this year's event were designed by looking at the courses from the past two Spring-O events and choosing leg routes that crossed terrain areas not traversed in the prior events. Course were designed to enter some areas not used entered in the past two years.

GPS tracking is being used in both the ribbon hanging and the control bag hanging process as a second verification of proper control placement. (Same process as used for the past 2 years to deploy and verify control bag locations for TJOC summer camp.
