akhockeyfan: question

Hi all,
I'm new to orienteering and to LJ also. And so far I love both! I don't know if it makes any difference but I'm in anchorage, alaska and I have a few questions about what are the different types of meets. I tried looking on our local website, but descriptions were almost nonexistent ( a subject I will take up later when I know a few more people)

I know what a traditional meet is but what does billygoat, score O, mountain O mean? are they local terms??

Thanks

Score-O means that, instead of hitting all the controls in as little time as possible, you hit as many controls as you can in the alotted time, and the controls might have different point values depending on how hard they are to reach.
A billygoat is (I think) a mass-start Score-O.
Mountain-O just sounds like it's a meet in the mountains, like a Bike-O is done on bicycles, and a Ski-O is done on skis.
