Event Report: Bush 6 Red Hill

Sunday 7th July 2019

Red Hill, John Forrest National Park NE RedHill 2019

Over 100 people came to Red Hill on Sunday - a winter's day perfect for orienteering and getting time in Nature. There was a smattering of wildflowers  – Hibbertia, Hovea and others – and the flowing creeks provided some fun for the younger juniors. The juniors were well represented, with a bus load coming from the Junior O camp to hone their skills.

Event Report: Malmalling SW SOL

Finally it’s started raining! Luckily we managed to hold this event in a window of fine weather, but it was nice to see the creeks running and to hear the frogs making a racket in the puddles. Or should that be kids making a racket in the puddles?

Malmalling is always tougher than it seems it should be and the ever present grass trees appeared to frustrate the best efforts of some on the day.

Event Report: NavDash 5 Russells Gully


Sunday 9th June 2019

Some 53 competitors braved the weather and came and enjoyed the Russell Gully event set by first time setter Sarah Richards, who is in the middle of sitting her Year 11 exams. The rain added to the challenge with slippery rock surfaces and water in the creeks. The long course included a map flip to keep the course interesting and on the short course half the branches has blown off the dead tree in the strong winds. The rain held off an most competitors managed to get run with only a light shower.
