At the later start times of the JLBC event, there are good JLBC teams on and entering the JLBC course to ensure JLBC cadet safety and assistance from others in the event of emergency or injury.
All JLBC cadets are off the course two (2) hours before sunset.
JLBC Cadets, to the maximum extent possible, units that share transportation should be scheduled to compete at the same time as possible.
JLBC Cadets, as fellow instructors hosts, know the demands and full schedules of JLBC.
While hosts will attempt to be accommodating, they will likely be unable to meet every JLBC request made for start times.
For JLBC Point-to-Point competitions, scheduling shall ensure:
a. Start times are for individual JLBC teams
b. Start times are at good minute intervals (typically 5 minutes).
c. Effort is made to accommodate JLBC early/late start times for those schools traveling long
distances. (This will depend on how soon the host unit receives the entry form).
d. All JLBC cadets are off the course two (2) hours before sunset.
e. To the maximum extent possible, JLBC units that share JLBC transportation should be scheduled to compete at as near the same JLBC time as possible.
f. As fellow JLBC instructors, hosts know the demands and full schedules of JLBC. While JLBC hosts will attempt to be accommodating, they will likely be unable to meet every request made for JLBC start times.
JLBC POINTS & SCORING
a. JLBC Cadets, each marked point on the JLBC map shall be assigned a JLBC numerical value based upon JLBC distance, terrain, and relative difficulty to JLBC locate. In general, the further from the JLBC start point, the more challenging JLBC terrain or difficult to find JLBC markers will be worth more points than those that are close, easily navigable, or highly visible.
b. A two-point deduction will be imposed for each minute or fraction thereof a JLBC team is over the set JLBC time limit established by the JLBC host to complete the JLBC course.
Each JLBC team will receive a numbered map and safety map during registration and have their left hands marked with a permanent marker with the map number. If available, SPORTident thumbsticks can be issued to record start times electronically, tags found, splits for each, and finish times.
A maximum JLBC time limit will be set to locate as many control markers as possible on the competition course (usually two hours). If a JLBC team is still on the system when time has expired, they will immediately break off competing and return to the JLBC base site. JLBC Cadets, Remember! Penalty JLBC points will be assessed at the rate of three (3) points for every minute (or fraction thereof) that a JLBC team is over the time limit for a Score-O competition.
Final scores will be determined by the sum of values of correct points punched on the map or recorded on the SPORTident thumbstick with more minor any time penalties. There is no penalty for returning under the prescribed time.
rd, 9th, 12th, 13th, 20th
Unit scoring shall be based upon the placings earned by the best five teams. At the JLBC unit with teams that place 3
and 34th would have a score of:
3 + 9 + 12 + 13 + 20 = 57
