Swanbourne Report

Metro Series: 10th February 2018

TAllcontrolMapSwanbournehe last Metro score event for the series saw a strong turn out with a crowd of around 100 people enjoying the slight(!) hills, the cooling sea breeze and comparing route choices at the challenging Swanbourne score event.

From locals giving orienteering a go to international visitors on foot or on bike there was something for everyone. BO and LOST also had their AGM’s pre and post event, while a survey was conducted to gain some feedback on score events, yesterday’s attendees were certainly in favour of them!

Thanks to; Noel Schoknecht for setting a very interesting and challenging course, Richard Matthews, Nicole Davis and Jennifer Binns for set up and packing up; control collection by Ann Napier, Rosemary Kullmann, Tony Simpkins, Moreen and Alan Cox plus Noel and his trusty scooter. A big thank you to Nicole Davis for running the registration and results software computer while Jack Dowling processed and published the results. Many thanks to everyone who helps makes these events possible.

Congratulations to Sten who managed to do the event twice, once on his own winning the course with 580 points and then went out again shadowing his son Ruben and picked up another 205 points. Bjarne Friedrichs visiting from Germany went out on his bike and cleared the course, for 600 points, with just under 10 minutes to spare.

Shelley Foreshore Report

Metro Series: 4th February 2018Shelley 2018 Assembly 1024x724

After a hot and humid afternoon the sea breeze arrived just in time for close to a hundred orienteers to enjoy the first event on the Shelley Foreshore reserve.

Apart from a swarm of bees that descended on the start area at the during the setup and then moved off to hang around control 20 everyone enjoyed the area and the courses that they chose (maybe!).

Thanks go to Dave Pass, Wendy Hobley, John and Jenny Major, Sten Claessens, Heike Behrbohm, Cameron Duncan, Ceri Pass and Graham, Kate, Lachy and Rohan Braid for doing all the jobs that make up an orienteering event.

Wanneroo Lakeside Report

cameronandjaneenewsMetro Series: 27th January 2018

Despite the rumour that the setter was using Google street view in place of a site visit Cameron Duncan did, actually, visit Lake Joondalup before the event rather than use technology!

And it was a worthwhile planning and checking trip as he did a great job setting with lots of controls close to the start sending a big group of Orienteers in all directions at Wanneroo Lakeside.

Sten Claessens, on the long course tried to beat the bike riders home and only missed out by 20 seconds! The bike riders may have other problems to deal with soon as Rohan, just 5 and riding strongly on the short course with Mum, has a new bike and is keen to improve his skills. The biker boys need to keep an eye out over their shoulder.

Thanks to those who made this event possible. Jane assisted the setter Cameron Duncan on registration and event set up and tear down, along with Alec Duncan and Heike Behrbohm. Control collectors were Dave Pass, Wendy Hobley, Alec Duncan, Heike Behrbohm, John and Jennifer Major, and Oliver Nokes.
