Event Report: Bush 9 Calophylla SOL

Sunday 18th August 2019CalophyllaJack

Location: Ridley Rd, Mt Observation 

Ninety people enjoyed glorious orienteering weather (as promised) whilst competing in SOL courses set by Mike Howe. With much of the terrain being fairly open, times were generally quite fast. Blue and pink lady orchids and some spider orchids could be spotted decorating the landscape, along with many other wildflowers.

Many thanks to Mike Howe for the courses, Ian Fletcher who towed the caravan, Moreen Cox who towed the toilet, Eddie Plummer, Chas Lane, Jan Fletcher, Phil Humphries, Peter Gillon, Sandra Tarr, Michael, Caitlin and Isaac Madden, Jennifer Binns and Tony Simpkins, all of whom helped set up, pack away and/or collected controls.  You are all very much appreciated. Apologies if I missed anyone.
