Summer orienteering continues through January and February on Friday evenings with the Twilight Series followed by the Snap Sprint Series. All events are listed under upcoming events. Note that events go ahead if the forecast temperature is over 35 degree for the time of the event, but may be cancelled on very hot days (40+) depending on the location.
Additional sprint format events and training are planned for the weekend of 22-23 February. Details are being finalized and are to be listed in our event program on Eventor.
Less formal orienteering training is held on Wednesday evenings, generally at 6 PM – these activities are also listed in upcoming events.
And if you can’t make to one of the scheduled events, the DIY courses are also available – with the newest set now in Shepherds Hill Recreation Park. The start location for these courses is at the National Park sign adjacent to the car park on Ayliffes Rd. All DIY courses are listed here and maps (PDFs) can also be downloaded free of charge.
A link to a Google Map – Location map shows you where the various courses are available.
For some armchair orienteering – view this set of videos by several British Orienteers covering the important orienteering techniques. Some terms may vary from Australian usage e.g. "re-entrant" = "gully". From this first video you can access the whole set (will list at the right on the You-Tube page) - https://youtu.be/3r0pQf-Phsc
