Event Report: Bush 3 Malmalling NE

Sunday, 23 May 2021

Despite the weather forecast and a Rogaine the previous day, almost 80 people came out to enjoy the courses set by Nick Dale and controlled by Ian Fletcher in some of our most challenging orienteering terrain. Many thanks to both of them. And the weather in the morning was delightful. Once the fog rolled away, we enjoyed beautiful autumn weather until after lunch. Even the control collectors only had a very light, occasional sprinkle to put up with.

As with all orienteering events, this one was made possible through the help of many volunteers. Anthea Feaver and Moreen Cox looked after instruction, and, to our delight, four groups of newcomers to orienteering came to the event and appreciated the support they provided. The two least favorite jobs, van and toilet towing, were taken on by Peter Gillon and Tony Simpkins, so many thanks to them! Control collection was undertaken by a good-sized group of LOST members: Anna Napier, Moreen Cox, Ian Fletcher, Nick Dale, Liisa Hirvonen (LOST’s newest member), Jan Fletcher and the Tarr/Madden contingent: Sandra, Janet, Alex, Caitlin and Isaac. (The visiting grandparents made a welcome addition). Special thanks to Robert Graieg who collected the controls on the most far-flung loop.
