What is BING-O like this year?

16 CPs total, 4 sections of 4 CPs each. Each section contains a hidden letter S-M-O-C! (Yep S-M-O-C is B-I-N-G-O this year) Each loop is roughly 2-2.5km, you'll get 1 CP from each section, for a total of 4 CPs per lap. Return to the S/F to reveal if you have gotten any of the hidden letters. Return back out to the course until you get all the hidden letters on successive laps. The caveat is you must get a unique control from each section each lap, so get really lucky and get all 4 letters 1st go in 2.5km, or get really unlucky and you're guaranteed to get all 4 hidden letters within 4 laps up to 10km. It's orienteering and statistics in one big sand dune adventure run! Fastest bingo winner will receive a prize!

Alternatively, you can drop to regular Score O format at any point.
