   Our Finnish orienteering scholar
A fine young man from Finland, Konsta, has been in Orange for a few weeks giving our club the benefit of his excellent knowledge of orienteering and map creation. He has helped us enormously. It is time now for him to move on with his tour in Australia.  We wish him well.
This article in CWD will tell you more about him and the good work he has done for us.

 
Bush Series #7 - Macquarie Woods North 8-Oct-17
   
Numbers were down on a damp, cool morning but the courses were great. Basil and Jean have had a very busy couple of weeks with the Australian Championships, etc. but found time to adapt courses from the Schools Relay Championships of last week to suit our club event. They took out some of the hill climbs, but there were plenty left. The overcast skies put pressure on the contestants to pay close attention to their compass work!

Bush Series #5 - Kinross Forest 6-Aug-17

On a cool but fine morning 40 competitors took on the Easy, Moderate and Hard courses in this            forest area close to Orange. The stand out result was Charles Keir who zapped the Hard course            in  42:36, a brilliant effort.  Thanks to Anna for organising and setting the courses, and thanks to          many others who helped make the event a success.


Bush Series Winter Sprint - TAFE Campus 2-Jul-17

Our first outing at TAFE Campus, Forest Rd was very successful, the grounds are ideal for a sprint event. Three new families joined in the fun. Basil and Jean did a super job mapping the area, setting the courses and serving up soup at the Finish!

Bush Series #4 - Oaky Creek Sth 6
-Jun-17
   
It keeps getting better!  We had 63 starters for this event, pretty much a record.  Everyone had an enjoyable morning, many new orienteers jumped straight into the Moderate course and did well. And there were a good number of teenagers and youngsters.  Russell delivered excellent course designs as always, and Carmen kindly brought some satisfying soup to serve at the Finish.


Bush Series #3 - Ophir North
 7-May-17
    Another great turnout for this event on a fine Autumn morning where we welcomed a couple of first-timers and one or two members we haven't seen for a while.  Courses were set by RIchard and Charles, they put in some long legs between controls which challenged our navigation skills.  In the Hard course the first six places all finished within a 10 minute period - unusually tight grouping - with Russell taking the honours in 49:17.
