Event Report: Bush 11 Julimar / Spice Brook

Sunday 8th September 2019Julimarphoto

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!

Thanks to setter Chas Lane and his assistant, Mike Howe, and Philomena Humphries for her organising skills. Thanks to Peter Gillon and Anna Napier for assisting with towing and set up. Thanks to all who assisted with set up and/ or control collecting: Mike Howe, Anthea Feaver and Peter Standen, Toivo Pedaste, Robert Boekalaar, and Chas Lane. Special thanks to the Tarr family for collecting controls, tapes and cones and also helping with the pack up. Thanks to Jan Fletcher for instructing and a big thank you to all the LOST members who brought along delicious cakes.

Chas offers his apology for the lack of H5 maps.  They have still not been located, so this gives us an opportunity for Lane Quiz #437!!
The H5 maps were:
a)  never printed
b)  printed but eaten by Lola and Rocky
c)  printed but abducted by Aliens
d)  printed but flew out the back of the wagon when Chas drove off with the tail-gate down.
Send your answers to Philomena. Nearest correct answer wins. Answer (if there is one) will be in the next edition.
