The Swanbourne MetrO event had good weather conditions and seemed to provide a rich variety of route choices in all the course lengths. Some orienteers opted for the flatter and more scenic but slightly longer route choice around Lake Claremont, with others choosing the more urban central Swanbourne. Many medium and long course participants tackled Allen Park and Melon Hill where there was a cluster of controls to be had but at the cost of some reasonably steep hills. It was wonderful seeing several newcomers, both children and adults, successfully complete the short and medium courses.
Thank you to Lucy and Paul Jarrett for setting the course, Rachel West for undertaking the newcomer briefing and assisting in running of the event, Brian and Anne Austin for assisting the participants, Veronica Jarrett for running the registration desk and Rosalie McCauley for her technological wizardry. Control collection was generously undertaken by Sophie and Hunter Giles-Shanley, Rob and Lois West, Graeme Harris, Brian and Anne Austin and Veronica Jarrett.
