on .

BUNDY FOREST Sunday 15 April

10km from Gumeracha on Forreston Road. GPS -34.758926, 138.952202

Tjuringa Orienteers presents an event on this rarely used section of Mt Crawford Forest that has been recently updated.


Mostly open, easy running, pine forest with patches of native bush. Gentle undulating terrain with nice pleasant tracks for beginners and families, and lots of point features for the more advanced orienteers.


Most of Mt Crawford is now embargoed, and access is forbidden until the National Championships Carnival in October. This is your only chance to practice in classic Mt Crawford terrain before then.

First Bush OY at Mack Creek

on .

Over 100 competitors enjoyed the first bush OY at Mack Creek. The weather, though variable, was mostly kind to competitors and most enjoyed their runs. Some found the terrain challenging. Well done David George for planning such interesting & challenging courses.

Thanks also to others from Tintookies who assisted in any way particularly Barry Wheeler (Organiser) and Bob Smith (Controller)

MackCreekMarch2018The Juniors also had training and the event was a Schools Selection Trial.

Many competitors had their eyes set on the Easter competitions in Tasmania. Good luck to all South Australians.

OY#2 Mack Creek Sunday 25th March

on .

This Sunday, Tintookies will be hosting the first bush OY event for the season at Mack Creek. This map presents classic spur gully terrain with scattered mining remnants while the shorter courses are on the flatter ground to the E of the park. The longer courses also get to explore some of the more interesting sections rocky sections to the west. This is the first time this map has been used for an event since the Sampson Flat fires. The park is currently looking magnificent, and being dry at the moment is easier to navigate.
The Junior Arrows will also be having short training session at 9:15am before the actual MackCreek Burnt2 event. This will be a short warm up activity focusing on a particular skill so you can then practice it on the actual course.

Pre enter and pay on the day. To be eligible for OY points you must be a club member and enter in your age class. If you prefer to be non-competitive you can enter by course. Provisional course information is available in the event information here at the link below for pre-entries.

March 4, Tatachilla Lutheran College, McLaren Vale

Over 100 orienteers enjoyed the perfect weather conditions at last Sunday's Sprint Champs, organised by Tjuringa.

Paul Hoopmann was the mapper and course setter. Thanks to Paul for some awesome course setting in what many expected to be a relatively easy environment, but which instead proved to be a challenge with many route choices and deceptively easy-looking legs that turned out to be not so easy on reflection as shown in Course 3 below. Bridget Anderson took on the role of as controller for the event.


Sandra and Julia ran the catering which made a profit of $270, which will go towards the Junior Arrows fund.

Full results and splits are available on the OSA website here. Winners will be presented with their certificates at next week's OSA AGM.

Antonio Garcia is excited to finish just behind Bob Smith.
