Park and Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise. You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability. However, it will test your thinking while giving you a great workout in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment.   Events are held all over Melbourne, all year round.

Our events welcome people of all ages and abilities, and accommodate everyone from the elite sports person to those looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Families and friends can participate in groups or individually.  Groups such as schools, scouts, sports or social clubs are very welcome - but please contact us at least a week prior to the event, so we can make sure enough maps are printed.

Printed programs covering all of Melbourne are available at most events. Further information is also available on this website: Want to learn more? Click here

Canterbury Trails

Thursday, 5 March 2015

Canterbury Trails is always a busy venue and this time was no exception - 150 "regulars" were joined by big groups of schools, guides, and the Run Crew, resulting in a turnout of well over 200. The event was hosted by Camberwell Grammar with courses set by Phil and Andrew, and much debate ensued afterwards about the best options.

Peter H prevailed on A course, continuing his strong form this summer. He was followed by Andrew, Bryan, Simon and Patrick. Justin won B course ahead of Jay, Josh, Alan and Darryl. Angus S was a first time C course winner, from Matthew, Phil, Charles and Jeremy. Angus M took out D course followed by Alex, John, David and John. Matt was the E course winner from Alex, me, Geoffrey and Gabriel. The winning score on PW was 57 by Len, just ahead of Mark on 55, Natalie and The Girls on 54, and Barry on 52.

There's only one scoring event left. Analysis of the overall results shows that A1 wont change, with Bruce, Andrew and Peter the placegetters. Colin is well in front on A2, but Chris and Ron are tied for second, and Kristian is a mere two points behind them. On A3, Hugh will win, but Peter and Chris may swap second and third. A4 should stay with Ken, Ian and Roger. Lanita, Bruce and Jay should retain their placings on B1. On B2, Peter D can still threaten for third place currently held by Katherine, with Ray and Tim in the top spots. There's plenty of interest in B3 where Mark's lead is not unassailable by Phil, and Geoff and Dale are separated by a single point as they fight for third.

Janine will be the clear winner from David on C1, but on C2 it's not so obvious, with Graham poised to fly up the list next week and threaten Vaughan's lead, while five people battle for third place. Suzy will win C3 from Libby and Prue. On D1, the placegetters will be Mason, Torren and Ray, while Henk will win D2 from Allan and Edward, although those two may swap positions.

Pat will probably concede her lead on E course to me and Sophie. Steven will take the title on PW1 with Mark and Len in the placings, but they may well swap spots. Helen has a big lead on PW2 from Sandy, with Graham looking likely to snatch third from Kay. On PW3, Lauris will win from Adam, but Ilze and Christine are only a point apart for third. Merrill will hold top spot on PW4 from Gwennyth, while Mike needs to fend of Gem and Shell who are only two points away from third. Barry also has a fight on his hands on PW5, with Di right on his tail, while either Keith or Kevin could take third.

So how will it all pan out? Find out next week at Trinity Triangle! This is a brand new map in Bulleen, using Trinity Grammar's sports field complex and the adjoining streets. New maps are tricky for everyone, and anything could happen. This is also the last event in the hotly contested Schools competition. Presentations and a bbq will be held afterwards, so please stay around, enjoy the food and the occasion, and applaud the efforts of our young competitors.

The following week is the last for summer! As usual, it will be our Awards night. After a fun 25-control event, the scouts will provide their always delicious bbq with salads, dessert (including their famous apple crumble) and drinks. We'll award the winners of Monday and Wednesday summer series, the Park and Street Champions, the Millennium Club Milestones, and the Course Setter of the Year. All participants are invited to come along and celebrate.
