Long Score has a double sided map – Part A has odd numbered controls and Part B has even numbered controls. Start on either side. Collect as many controls as you like from the first side then turn over. Once you have turned over, there is no going back to the first side. Check the number on each control before punching! If your SIAC accidentally picks up controls from the wrong side in passing, these will be ignored.
