Period: 12 months a year.

Number of participants: 4 - 100.

Location: Tracks are located around Aegviidu in a 30-kilometre radius. Aegviidu town itself is located 60 km from Tallinn.

Description:

The event is essentially orienteering in cars, and teams will endeavour to find a maximum number of checkpoints in nature within a given time limit. The team with most checkpoints will be the winner.
The vehicles are classic UAZ jeeps in their full glory, with maps and GPS for navigation.


We will divide participants into teams at start and provide map-reading, GPS and UAZ guidance.
Cars will set out with 3-5 minute intervals.
Checkpoints will be marked by signs on trees, bearing the checkpoint number and password.

Teams will have to find the signs and write down the passwords. Driving, map-reading, GPS navigation and checkpoint identification will provide enough tasks for the whole team. Orienteering is selective, meaning there will be more checkpoints than the actual time limit will allow to find. This requires good strategic planning and choice-making from each team.
Each checkpoint will be accessible through existing forest lanes, so there won't be any brutality towards nature. However, most of the lanes are in poor condition and jeeps are thus very appropriate means of transport.
We will calculate points in the finish and establish the ranking.
The finish might be a tourism farm, a holiday village or a RMK (State Forest Management Centre) campsite in the Kõrvemaa reserve. A picnic may follow, or a party and good night's sleep in the forest, depending on your wishes.
