Location: Gunapin, west of BeverleyRobB Gunapin

Gunapin, although an old map is still in good condition and there aren’t too many changes to the vegetation.  There are some tight sections to the courses that should give some navigational headaches and some route choice that will confound the experts at the penultimate event for the State Long Distance Championships the week after.
Thank you to the landowners for their assistance and their support of this event.

Fine weather and a tough challenge on difficult terrain were enjoyed by 80+ orienteers on Sunday at Julimar. Sharp rocks were sometimes hard to distinguish in the areas of heavily burnt ground and there were a number of trips and falls. Well done to all who took part!
