The IOF Council has decided to grant provisional approval for the use of SFR Punching System in Foot Orienteering World Ranking Events.

It should of course read 'punching', but what has happened to the edit function?

If you login (from the Events or Photos section) then the edit icon will appear to edit your post. I have fixed the title for you now though.

Has anyone used this system? What does a complete set end up costing?

It has been used in Russia for several major events.
The link below will answer all your questions including cost.

Thanks Svend. I was meaning more if any readers of this website have used this system in an event and can let us know what it was like to use.

I didn't see a cost for the software component but on a closer read of the pdf I see it is freeware. So based on the pricing it is, very roughly, about NZ$85 per control unit and NZ$5 per punch card "petal".

That sounds quite reasonable and worth considering as an option for Upper Clutha.

This video explains how the system works
