Something to write with
This event is run as a sit-down test. Participants will use map reading skills (road maps, topographic, and satellite images) to go on a fictitious journey that is written out for them, and answer questions along the way.
Teams must bring a writing instrument. Each team may also bring one non-programmable, non-graphing calculator dedicated to computation, a protractor, a ruler, and other measuring devices along with one three-ring binder of any size containing a USGS Map Symbol Sheet and other information in any form and from any source, attached using the available rings. The information may be removed during the event. Laptops are not permitted.
High Score wins. Points are given for each correct answer, some questions may be worth more than others. Predetermined questions will be used to break ties.
