ALMOST4X4 GPS CHALLENGE

Whoop whoop! Heat up your GPS devices, stretch your off-road muscles, Almost4X4 GPS Challenge is loading… It will be a full-day event with lots of fun. This event is open to all members of the Almost4X4 Offroad Club who has more than 10 drives with the club. It is a team-based GPS navigation game to test and practice the skills you have learned so far in a safe and fun way. So read the information below carefully, gather your team, and register.

OBJECTIVE:
Teams will be provided with 40 GPS waypoints within a 10 km radius game area at various difficulty levels.
Each GPS waypoint will have a point value according to its difficulty.
Teams have to collect as many points as they could before the deadline.
There is no specified order of points; each team has to make its own route and strategy to collect the most possible points in the given timeframe.

The winning team will be decided by:
- Calculating total points collected.
- Confirming the physical and visual point confirmation elements (more details below).
- The winning team will be announced later in the evening during the camp.

EVENT RULES AND CONDITIONS:

1. All teams will consist of 3 vehicles with at least one Newbie driver.
2. Teams have to stick together. No separating! To confirm this, teams must provide a group photo at each visited point clearly showing the GPS point marker in the frame.
3. Each team will be provided with a point checklist sheet to fill out. This will be used to calculate your points at the end of the game, so fill it out clearly and neatly. Any missing information might result in losing points.
4. Tempering with point markers or any game elements is strictly forbidden. We are a family and we want everyone to enjoy a fair game so please leave the points in the same condition you found them.

The following actions will result in disqualification:

1. Separating from the team.
2. Tempering with the point elements.
3. Any damage to your vehicle which requires a police report.
4. Reaching the finish point after the deadline.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Offroading could be a hazardous sport, and there is always the risk of seriously damaging your vehicle, yourself, or your passengers. By signing up for this event, you accept full responsibility for any incident that could happen during the event. Please drive safely and remember your training.

REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN ON ALMOST APP!

MORE DETAILS:
1. The game will start and end at the center point of the 10 km radius game area, which will also be the camping point for those who would like to arrive the night before or stay after the event.
2. The location will be shared a few days prior to the event.
3. On the day of the event each team will receive a printed sheet with 40 GPS points in various GPS formats, a map of the game area marked with the points and a checklist to fıllout at each point.
4. Teams will have 30 minutes after the briefing to work on a strategy and put in the given points to their devices.
5. There are 5 types of points to hunt with different point values. Green, Yellow, Red, Blue and Purple.
  • Green indicates “easy” points, close to the center of the game area, on flats or easy-to-access dunes.
  • Yellow indicates “medium” difficulty points further away from the center or in trickier dunes.
  • Red indicates “hard” points at the far ends of the game area, in tricky, technical, high dunes.
  • Blue indicates “Hidden” points which will be somewhere within a 10-meter radius around the given GPS location. Challengers will have to leave their vehicles to physically search for the point marker as it might be somewhere hard to see or reach!
  • Purple indicates “Approximate” points. At these points, the point marker could be anywhere in a 100-meter radius from the shared GPS point. You have to drive around to find the marker.
6. Each point will have a clearly marked point marker with a unique stamp and a treasure pouch. Treasures are to be collected by the first team that arrives at each point. They will add extra points at the end of the game!
7. Teams have to have a group photo taken at each point, clearly showing all team members and the point marker.
8. Teams have to reach to the finish before the deadline and hand out their clearly filled checklist. A penalty will be applied to the latecomers for the next 30 minutes. Teams reaching after 30 minutes will be disqualified.
9. Team photos and collected treasures will be checked at the finish point so keep them safe!
