Event Report: Bush 6 Jorgensen Park

Sunday, 20 June 2021

A wet, windy and cold Sunday was promised by the Weather Bureau but Paul and Erica Smale and Jenny and John Major were up early to set up the Jorgensen Park event, hoping there would be some intrepid and dedicated orienteers turn up. We were not disappointed as several hearty souls defied the weather and turned out to take part. Most were lucky and only got wet from the bush as the rain eased.

A big thank you goes to Ceri for towing the caravan, Melinda for computer duties and Erica for gate duties. This last duty was necessary as Kalamunda Shire had allocated us a designated parking area solely for our use. In addition to our event there many locals who came to the opening of their Community Centre and were upset at being denied the extra parking area when theirs filled up. Erica handled the problems very well. Thanks also go to the KO team of control collectors - Lachie, Rohan, Sten, Ceri, Veronica, Heike, Jen and Paul - and to John and Erica for packing everything away. A really big thank you is due to setters Paul and Jenny.

Despite the wet weather and a Rogaine being held on the same weekend, the event was successful. Thank you to everyone who came to make all our hard work worthwhile.
