WA Classic


Sunday 31 May and Monday 1 June

Love is in the air at our special 2-day WA Classic event this long weekend. Lover's Ridge and Lover's Lane both promise interesting courses on maps that combine areas of farmland and bush.

Members can compete on both days to be in the running for the overall WA Classic, or just come along for one of the days. Casual members and newcomers are very welcome - there are courses to suit beginners, intermediate and experienced orienteers and, if it is your first time, instruction is available.
