SI stations will operate in contactless mode too. If SI Air+ is not working in contactless mode (0.3 m (30 cm) away from checkpoint), participants must use it in contact mode (inserting in the socket). Before going in distance, SI cards and SIAC must be cleared (checkpoint Clear) and activated (checkpoint Check)


If the checkpoint on the map is not working or is not found, because it is stolen, the team must send a text message to emergency phone no. +371 29267142 with the team number and the number of the checkpoint (example: 1002 45 kp.). If the fact wil be confirmed after the check-up, point wil be taken in account.
