2023 Control Bounty
Thank you for supporting Team Canada! As a team we rely heavily on support from the orienteering community to organize training camps, support athletes at international events, and provide access to coaching.
Throughout May, Team Canada athletes will record controls they visit while training or competing. You can help by making a pledge, as outlined below. You can also see their control goal, to help you make decisions for pledging.
Identify an athlete, several, or the whole team. There are no rules for how you pledge but it should be linked to how many controls athletes visit. If you want you can set a limit for the amount you will pledge up to - in case one of the athletes goes to way more controls than expected!
You can be as creative as you want with your pledge! Some examples are
$0.50 per control for all athletes to a max of $100.00
$1.00 for each control up to 100 controls then $2.00 for every control over 100
$5.00 per control on May 17
The square of the number of athletes that visit at least 100 controls in the month. 1 athlete hits that target the team gets $1, 10 hit that target, $100, all 22 hit that target, $484.
Also note that all pledges will be counted from the start of the month (unless you specify otherwise) even if you make your pledge later in May.
If you want some inspiration, you'll be able to check out what other people are pledging before you make your choice!
We also encourage you to get out there yourself! How many controls can you visit? Can you match the training of one of the athletes?
We'll confirm your total pledge with you via email at the end of the month and ask you to submit your pledge amount through Orienteering Canada's page on Canada Helps. You'll receive a tax receipt (and our big thanks!) for your donation.
Stay tuned to updates from TCP athletes throughout the month at the TCP instagram below! If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
New this year is that you too can track you control for the month in the "Community Bounties" tab in the spreadsheet. You can sign up using the button above and you name will be added to the Community Bounties within the day. Once added you can start tracking your contols!
