South West Orienteering Association
Controllers are the officials appointed to make sure that events are fair and comply with BOF Rules and Appendices, and may be best be thought of as technical advisers and quality controllers. Their appointment is governed by BOF rules detailing the experience necessary. There are three grades:
Grade A for controlling major events at the highest level, such as British Championships.
Grade B for controlling national events (old Level B).
Grade C for controlling regional events (old Level C), such as SWOA Galoppens.
Grade B and C controllers are normally appointed by their club. Grade A controllers are recommended by their regional association and appointed at national level; they are orienteers with considerable experience as competitors, organisers, planners and controllers.
All enquiries about appointments of controllers in SWOA should be made to the Recorder of Controllers.
A list of all controllers in SWOA can be found here.
