Bush 9: Ngangaguringguring
Sunday, 27 August 2023
Near The Lakes
Don't be scared by the name or the bush, this event is sure to be hit with whole family! Come along and join one of our courses.
There are some new unmapped trail bike tracks, particularly in the north-eastern part of the courses for H1-3 and there may be others elsewhere as it is a popular area for trail bike riding. Some of the more prominent ones have been added to the map.
The controls will be programmed into SI Air mode for this event. If you have an SI Air tag you will be able to punch controls without having to insert your SI stick, however regular punching by inserting the controls with a regular SI stick will also work. If you want to make use of the SI Air mode make sure you have the correct SI stick registered in Eventor prior to the event.
Entries are open on Eventor. Pre-enter by Saturday August 26th at 4.50pm.
Courses: H1 (7.6km), H2 (5.5km), H3 (4.1km), H4 (2.8km), M (3.2km), E (2.4km), VE (2.2km)
