Frazzle Rock Bush Event

Sunday 10th May

A chance to enjoy a great weekend of Orienteering on one of the premier maps in the West Australian Wheatbelt. Camping has also been organised for Saturday night on Sam Burton’s block so don’t miss this chance to socialise with your fellow orienteers. Camping requires BYO everything.

Frazzle Rock was mapped and first used for the National Three Day Championships in 2011 and has areas of complex rock with remnant native bush and open fast running farm land.  The area in use for this event is a seldom used part of the map so don’t miss out on a chance to run on a nearly new map!

Camping Saturday Night
Camping is available on Saturday night for any Orienteers who would prefer not to drive down on Sunday morning and would like a night under the stars. Camping will be BYO everything. To access the camping follow the directions for the event, enter the property and camp at the marked location. There will be a 2 minute drive or a nice warm up run to the event assembly on Sunday morning. A short, free scatter Night-O Event has been planned for Saturday night so don’t forget to bring a head torch, and enjoy the stars!
