Event Report: Abercorn Rd State Long Champs Bush 13

Sunday 22nd September 2019abercornRdChamps2019 womensWINNER

At first sight the Abercorn Road map is intimidatingly steep and green. Phillip Dufty designed courses
that minimized necessary climb and offered numerous routes options which could further reduce climb
and avoid much of the thick vegetation. Phil, with help from Penny Dufty and Mason Eves, and organizer
Ricky Thackray, presented a top-class, challenging event that was enhanced by perfect weather for
orienteering. Ian Fletcher kept a controller’s eye on proceedings.

Event Report: Bush 12 Gunapin


Sixty-nine orienteers travelled to Gunapin Ridge to enjoy a great (if not the great) area for orienteering in WA. A beautiful, cool day greeted the competitors, there was no rain in sight.  I planned eight courses with the view that a sprint championship and a long distance championship were in the offing next weekend. Apart from one control, #126, that was misplaced, many competitors commented that they were happy with the variety of courses and the challenge that they presented.
