Upcoming Event: NavDash 1, Gosnells

Sunday, 28 February 2021

This weekend is the start of the winter series with the first of 7 NavDash events.

The courses are mainly in parkland so the control sites are mostly on visible features, not in nooks and crannies as can be the case in heavily built areas. Come and enjoy a pleasant area beside the Canning River (which was actually flowing 2 weeks before the event).

If you're up for the challenge, see how quickly you can get round the course without mispunching. You're always welcome to run another course afterwards if you want to (no additional charge). 

If you want to take things at a more leisurely place, that's no problem. Running's not compulsory - just be back at the assembly area by 12 noon. As the controls are close together, NavDash events are great to keep little ones engaged - just watch out for those dashing round the course.

Please pre-enter if you can, and read the Information flyer that is on the event page in Eventor.

Information about NavDash (sprint) orienteering can be found here.

Orienteering for Beginners

Ever thought about trying orienteering but not sure what to do?

We are running an introductory session for beginners at Whiteman Park, using our Anytime Orienteering Course there.  Come along for an afternoon of activities, on either Saturday 27 February  or Saturday 17 April, finishing with an afternoon tea each time. 

We can give you a taster in what orienteering is all about.  You will also receive a free pass to be guided around a moderate course, or to attend to any other of our orienteering events this year.
