  2. Patrols wishing to enter more than one team may do so at the discretion of the Central Zone President’s Cup Planning Committee.

Skills and Equipment

  1. Patrollers may only bring a standard first aid kit, vest or back pack that is equipped with the standard supplies recommended for a kit in the manual.
  2. Kit inspections may happen at any time and President’s Cup marshals may remove supplies or equipment from a patroller. Anything removed from a patroller will be returned at the completion of the competition.
  3. All required equipment and supplies other than a patroller’s personal kit will be supplied at the competition and every effort will be made to ensure everyone has access to the same quality of supplies or equipment.


  1. Each team may only receive one award. As each award is decided that team is withdrawn from the other awards. In order: the first team is the overall winner, the AFA winner and finally the OSR winner. If there is a nordic team then the highest score would receive the nordic award. Only teams from Central Zone may win an award in the President’s Cup.
