Maylands Foreshore reserve
Just over 80 orienteers attended the final MetrO series event of the 2023/2024 season in Maylands. The Swan River foreshore made for a nice assembly area, and competitors picked a large variety of routes around the lakes and through the parklands on the peninsula. Those who took the time to enjoy the many scenic views from control sites would not have been disappointed. Thankfully, the weather was a little cooler than last week at just over 30 degrees at the time of the event.

The latest MetrO event introduced a new map of Piara Waters from absentee course setter and mapper Ricky Thackray, who showed up just for the weekend to run the event before promptly fleeing the state again (temporarily). Conditions were on the warmer side of comfort but the hot weather predictor at 5pm allowed for full length courses to be run.

The cool breeze offered some relief from the three 40 degree days last week, setting the scene for a pleasant day of orienteering at Event 11 of the MetrO series! 85 participants dashed and wove their way through the streets of Woodvale to find controls scattered around parks, tied to light posts and hung on fences. The event saw lots of newcomers attend and take on the updated map, traversing the various parks and pathways in the area.
