Ashwood North

Thursday, 4 February 2016

As orienteers we are used to many hazards and obstacles, but low flying drones may be a first! It was a beautiful evening, which drew the highest turnout so far this season.  It's a tricky map to course set on with the restrictions posed by the uncrossable golf course, but Lauris did a great job.  A few people were caught out exiting via 20, then finding themselves coming back past it later.  

Andrew was joined at the top of the A course results by Paul, Bryan, Kristian and Ian.  Peter H paid a visit and took out B course, ahead of Steven, Bruce, Viki and Andrew.  C course saw Andrew return fastest, then Jay, Reg, Eric and Andras.  Sonia won D course ahead of me, Lara, David and Charlotte.  Dave's 64 points on PW kept him ahead of Michael on 62, Barry on 59, Helen on 58, and Graham on 55.

Don't forget that February is Park and Street Champs month!  The big event is on Feb 29, on the Gladeswood Spur map in Mulgrave.  If you wish to qualify to compete in the final, you need to:
- be a menber of an orienteering club
- compete on the appropriate course for your age group (click here for details), in one of the Qualifying events 
- use a BLUE control card during the Qualifying event/s, to indicate your availability on Finals night

Look out for the orange flyers which tell you all you need to know.  See you next Monday at Clarinda!

Monday Night Series

About this series:

Where: Southern and eastern suburbs of Melbourne

When: 7:00pm Mondays; all year round

Cost:  $4 per event for adults, $2 for juniors (under 21)

What to bring: jogging/walking shoes and comfortable, light coloured clothing.  Bring a watch, a drink, and a torch for winter events (late March-mid October).

Please arrive 20-30 minutes early. This will provide time to help you register for the event and explain how to take part.

Groups (schools, scouts, sports or social) are extremely welcome, but please contact us at least a week prior to the event so we can ensure enough maps are printed. 

In winter (March-October), there are 25 controls marked on the map.  Choose one of two formats - a 60 minute Score course (visit as many controls as you can in the allocated time, aiming to score as many points as possible), or a "37s" course, where you are allocated a handicap as your starting score, then you aim to visit enough controls to bring your points score to 37.
