Control Descriptions

As you read through the symbols, you should see the logic behind most of what's there.

Of course, once you'e fluent in IOF, you can go orienteering in China or Russia or Syria or anywhere, confident you will be able to understand the clue sheets because they'll be in IOF symbols.

At our local Come And Try It events or the Sydney Summer Series events, the description of the precise location of the control marker will probably be in simple English words with perhaps some size detail in metres.  Some setters do like to do both.
