1996-2020:  Twenty-Four Years of Orienteering Competition!

Over 30,000 Scouts have competed in Score-O since 1996.  Score-O is a fast-paced Orienteering competition for Troops, Crews, and Webelos! Your team gets a SCORE-O map showing the locations of control flags in the woods. Find the flags to score points!

ALL 2020-2021 events will be done outside and have been redesigned to follow Covid-19 protocols!

No mass start in 2021. Score-O has been redesigned to have all day staggered start times by individual units throughout the morning and early afternoon turning one big start into hundreds of small team starts. The markers will be using codes this year, rather than hole punches (so teams won’t have to touch them).

The Longhorn Council cares deeply about the health and safety of all Scouts and their families. All 2020-2021 weekend events have been redesigned to incorporate the latest CDC, State, and BSA guidelines and make them as safe as possible during the covid-19 pandemic. The updated event plans make it possible for Scouts, adults, and families to have fun in the outdoors while safely following current social distancing and hygiene protocols. Masks are required for 2020.

All events have new procedures for cleaning, sanitizing, hygiene, mask wearing, and social distancing to avoid crowds and to keep our Scouts outside where it is much safer than indoors.

Competition Maps are challenging.  Score-O is a more difficult Scouts BSA and Venturing level Competition, with interesting sport orienteering challenges for teams to solve. The map is ready and the competition areas have been checked and marked! It’s another completely new 5-color orienteering map. There are now SIX 400 gallon water buffaloes for water refills.
