Vampire-O is back at Eagle Island, Oct 19 2019

Are you ready to face down vampires at Eagle Island?  Vampire-O is back! You will have one-hour to collect as many controls as you can, in the dark, with a twist. Vampires will be on the loose to steal your punch-sheet and turn you into one of them! Grab your headlights and come join us for this fun event. 

Date:  Saturday, October 19th
Location:  Eagle Island State Park (park entrance is now from State Street)
Format:  Score
Mass Start:  7:15pm. Don’t be late!!

Time Limit: 1 hour
Cost:  Maps $5 junior or $10 adult/team, CTOC members free, ($5 vehicle entry fee)

RSVP: melaniecwright at gmail dot com if you are bringing a group (>4 people)

Make sure you pay the $5 vehicle entry fee on the way into the park at the entrance kiosk. For a bargain the Idaho State Park Passport is only $10 for full year access to all 30 state parks. The park has generously allowed us use of the park without paying any event or shelter rental fee, in return, please pay the park entry fee if you do not have the Annual State Park pass. 


Event start is at the Harrier Shelter to the left of the waterslide. Park at the main paved parking area.

Rules:
1. 2 Vampires will start 3 minutes after the mass start
2. Vampires have a blank vampire punch card worth 0 points
3. Vampires attack orienteers by getting within 5 meters and yelling “vampire attack”, the victim must then surrender their punch card to the vampire. They then receive the “vampire card” and become the vampire.
4. Just like in tag the vampire can’t immediately tag back but must find another victim
5. All controls are worth the same amount of points, 10 points. They can be visited in any order.
6. Penalty of 10 points per minute if you are back late. Be back on time!
7. There is no separate beginner/intermediate/advanced course. The time limit is one hour. It is up to you to determine how many controls you can collect within the time limit. Remember you must be back by the time limit or lose massive points. You will need to be a runner if you plan to collect all of the controls. But remember, no matter how many you collect, you can be attacked by a vampire at any time and lose your points. You can also become a vampire and leapfrog ahead. 
8. If you don’t want to be attacked by vampires you have the option of carrying “holy water” to ward off vampire attacks. Anyone carrying a 1 gallon jug of water is immune from vampire attacks. You must however bring your own jug, and you must carry it by hand at all times.
9. You can compete as a group but must remain together.
10. Ranking is by highest points and then quickest time.
11. Don’t forget a flashlight or headlamp, please no super bright headlamps, you don’t want to take the fun out of the dark. Also you must have a watch so you are back in time. Costumes are encouraged but remember you will want to run in them.

It will be almost dark by the time we start, so plan accordingly.
